Hotel Occupancy Tax

Hotel IconHotel occupancy tax is imposed on the rental of a room or space in a hotel costing $15 or more each day. The tax applies not only to hotels and motels, but also to bed and breakfasts, condominiums, apartments, and houses. Local hotel taxes apply to sleeping rooms costing $2 or more each day.

  

Persons leasing their houses, or rooms in their house, must collect the tax from their customers in the same way a hotel or motel collects the tax from its guests. Property management companies, online travel companies, and other third-party rental companies may also be responsible for collecting the tax.

 

The Texas Comptroller's office collects and administers the state hotel tax, while the City of Sealy is responsible for collecting its own local hotel tax. Local establishments remit the local taxes they collect to the city on a quarterly basis.
