Park Board to Launch Simplified Tax Reporting System

01/11/2018 4:16 PM | Stephanie Haynes (Administrator)

A new payment process will allow entities that collect Hotel Occupancy Taxes (HOT) to file and pay them in one step. The new process will automatically calculate the tax rate when the tax payer files his revenue report and will process the payment at the same time. Currently, tax payers must file and pay separately. The new system is being tested among a group of short-term rental property owners and is expected to launch in February. This is the final step in a multi-year process aimed at making HOT collections more business friendly. Previous changes include coordinating payment dates with state mandates, allowing tax payers to file quarterly instead of monthly and accepting credit card payments
