Hotel Occupancy Tax

Hotel Occupancy Tax Collections

Tourism can be a key strategy for economic development in the City of Tomball. This is made possible for the city through a collection of hotel occupancy tax. Not only does this tax provide much needed tourism revenue to the city or county, but it can also provide economic development for the entire area. Unlike the local sales tax, the occupancy tax is optional and can be imposed without the approval of voters. The City of Tomball hotel / motel tax rate is 7% of net receipts.

Who Must File?

Sole owners, partnerships, corporations, or other organizations that own, operate, manage, and/or control any hotel, motel, “bed and breakfast inn”, or other locations offering “sleeping rooms” for periods of less than 30 days in the City of Tomball.

When do I File the Report?

Quarterly: the last day of the month following the end of each calendar quarter.

Where do I send the reports and payments?

The City of Tomball has chosen Avenu MuniServices as a partner to assist the City’s staff in the collection of the Hotel Occupancy Tax.
