Upon receiving your completed application, we will send you a confirmation and instructions for reporting and remitting your tourist tax.
You must post your remittance online on or before the 20th of the month following the month in which you collected payment. If the 20th falls on a non-business day, we will accept the payment as current only if we receive it in our office the following business day. Delinquent payments incur a penalty of 10% (minimum $50.00) plus interest. You may take a collection allowance of 2.5% of the tax ($30 maximum) if you file on time and remit online.
Keep complete and accurate records of all sales made, all taxes collected, and any pertinent documents. These records should be available during business hours for inspection by the tax collector or an authorized representative of the tax collector's office. In addition, you must preserve these records for at least three years.
Warning: Giving false information to avoid collecting and remitting the tourist tax is a criminal offense subject to prosecution.
