Tourist Development Tax Account

You may not need to apply for a Tourist Development Tax Account with our office. The Hillsborough County Tax Collector entered into agreements with the below platforms to ensure our county will receive the tourist development taxes due from every Hillsborough County property owner (host) whose booking is paid through these registered platforms.

These platforms will collect and remit the taxes paid through their site on behalf of their hosts. However, if the host contracts with a third-party reservation system that advertises on one of these platforms and the payment goes through the third-party and not the registered platform, then the host is still responsible for remitting the taxes on their bookings.

If you are using these sites exclusively, and not using a third-party reservation system, you will not need to complete an application to obtain a Tourist Development Tax Account with our office. The registered platforms are:

  • Airbnb – Bookings effective December 20, 2016
  • HomeAway – Bookings effective January 7, 2019
  • Misterb&b – Bookings effective January 10, 2019
  • VRBO – Bookings effective January 7, 2019
  • Vacation Rentals – Bookings effective January 7, 2019
