Hotel Tax Due on Airbnb Rentals in Texas

A recent edition of the Comptroller’s Tax Policy News publication clarifies that hotel occupancy taxes are due on rentals of houses, condos, or apartments. State hotel occupancy tax is due when taxpayers rent sleeping accommodations for more than $15 per day, and local hotel occupancy taxes may also be due. In Texas, the hotel occupancy tax is 6%.

Detailed information on the hotel occupancy tax is available on the Comptroller’s website.
