Hotel Occupancy Tax (HOT) is imposed on the rental of a room or space costing $15.00 or more each day for State reporting and $2.00 or more each day for Local reporting. Any person leasing their house(s), or room in their house, as a Short Term Rental must collect the tax from their customers in the same way a hotel or motel collects the tax from their guests. The HOT rate in Jamaica Beach is 15% (6% to State and 9% to Local) of the cost of the room. Please visit the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts website for more information and/or State reporting. Download the city's Hotel Occupancy Tax Form for Local reporting and remitting. Please file reports, even if no tax was collected, by due date to avoid State and Local penalties.
