Please be advised that the TOT rate increased from 10% to 14% of gross revenue on January 1st, 2023. This rate was adopted by the electorate at an election held on November 8th, 2022. City Council adopted the increase at its December 21st, 2022 meeting. This tax will be collected beginning January 1st, 2023.
There is a 10% penalty applied on the first day of the second month after the due date on outstanding taxes. For example, taxes for the January period must be paid by the last day of February or the penalty will apply on March 1st. In addition, interest at the rate of 1.5% of the taxes due will apply on the first day of each month on the same accrual basis as the penalty.
