Hotel Occupancy Tax

Percentage of Rental Rate


A tax is imposed upon the use and privilege of renting, leasing or letting a hotel room within the city at a rate of 3% of the room rental rate (not including taxes or other non-room rental charges added to the hotel bill) for each such room rented for every 24-hour period or any fraction thereof.


Registration Policies


Every hotel is required to be registered. Multiple hotels owned by the same person must be registered separately.

Sale of Business


In the event of the sale of a business, the seller must notify the Revenue and Collection Division of the date of the last occupancy. The new owner is required to re-register the location.
