Visit Jacksonville is funded by bed tax dollars. The 6 percent bed tax is placed on all hotel rooms in Duval County. Of the 6 percent tax collected, 2 percent is allocated to the Sports Complex Upkeep Fund,  2 percent to EverBank Field and 2 percent to the TDC. Of the TDC's portion, 70 percent is used to fund Visit Jacksonville. The organization's funding is supplemented through Partnership dues.
