Yes. Short-term vacation property owners, property managers, and hoteliers need to know that any condition of rentals (including booking fees, pet fees, cleaning fees, mandatory travel insurance, and any additional energy surcharge fees, such as pool heat) is taxable. For example, if your ad reads "$1,000.00 a week plus cleaning fee of $150.00," then $1,150.00 is the taxable amount.

The above is not an all-inclusive list of taxable items. For additional information, contact our Tourist Tax Department at (941) 741-4809 or
