Optimize your ability to establish, audit, and manage your local hospitality industry, including traditional hotel occupancy tax (HOT)/transient occupancy tax (TOT) and the growing challenges of short-term rentals. HdL assists with all aspects of lodging tax operations management, education, compliance and collections.
Short-term rentals can throw complicated obstacles your way, including changes to the municipal code, regulatory issues, lodging provider identification and education, and tax compliance. HdL’s short-term rentals service can help, ensuring that entities subject to taxation or licensure are properly identified, registered, and accurately reporting.
