Room Tax Reporting Instructions 2022 - YouTube

If you would like to look at the paper version of the instructions, they can be found below.

If you use marketplace websites like Airbnb or VRBO, make sure you list your permit number on your page. This will allow the Tourism Zone to identify your property and verify that your are permitted.


Any stay occurring in 2022 or beyond must be taxed at 8.0% regardless of when the reservation, deposit, or stay was paid.

All 2022 bookings will have the 8.0% tax rate applied, regardless of what date the booking occurred. If a booking is made in 2021 for a stay that occurs in 2022, the tax rate will be 8.0%. If there is a stay that spans between December 31, 2021 and January 1, 2022, the stay can be split into two different tax rates. However, any booking with a check-in date past January 1st will only be taxed at 8.0%.
