Yes. If you remit electronically and on a timely basis, you can take a collection allowance of 2.5% of the tax collected. The maximum collection allowance is $30.00 per month.


Rent                              $ 1,000.00

Tourist tax                     $      50.00

Collection allowance     $        1.25 (2.5% of $50.00 tourist tax)

Total due                       $      48.75 (tax amount of $50.00 less collection allowance of $1.25)

If you remit paper coupons and/or pay by check, you cannot take the collection allowance.
