Collect Occupancy Taxes 7%. From and after September 1, 1982, a tax is imposed upon the cost of occupancy of any sleeping room furnished by any hotel, where the cost of occupancy is at the rate of two dollars or more per day. The term “Hotel” includes motels, tourist homes, lodging houses, boarding houses, inns, rooming houses, or other buildings where rooms are provided for the consideration of two dollars or more per day. Every person owning, operating, managing, or controlling any hotel or bed and breakfast (Short Term Rental) must collect the Hotel Occupancy Tax from their guests for the City of Uvalde, which is 7%.
Reporting Requirements. The tax must be reported and remitted by an individual or entity owning, operating, managing, or controlling a hotel or bed and breakfast (Short Term Rental) within the extraterritorial jurisdiction of the city of Uvalde.
Deadlines. Reports and payments are due on or before the 20th day of each month following the month in which the tax is collected (i.e. when the taxable event occurred.) Reports and payments submitted late will incur a penalty of $50.00 (Fifty Dollars) and 5% interest.
NOTE: A report must be filed even if no tax is due for the reporting period. The City has contracted the collection of Hotel occupancy tax with Avenu Insights. For questions please contact Avenu Insights at 1-866-240-3665 and the email address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
