HOTEL TAX

Occupancy Tax Solutions for the Hotel Industry

The travel industry is dynamic with transactions increasingly completed online and any room booking requires hotel or lodging taxes.  Whether you operate hotels & motels, online booking services, resorts, vacation rentals, Airbnb’s, timeshares or any other type of accommodations, calculating and remitting the correct hotel taxes is a critical part of the process.

Dealing with hotel and occupancy tax is particularly painful and risky because tax rates are high, representing a significant component of each booking. Lodging taxes generally include sales tax plus additional hotel or occupancy taxes, very often administered by city and county agencies.  The highly localized nature of hotel taxes means you are often dealing with a complex web of thousands of city & county tax agencies, with difficult to obtain information and offline processes.
