Hotel Occupancy Taxes

Every person owning, operating, managing, or controlling any hotel or collecting payment for occupancy in any hotel shall collect the Hotel Occupancy Tax from their guests for the Town of Fairview.

A hotel is any building or buildings in which the public may obtain sleeping accommodations for a cost of $2 or more each day for a consecutive duration of 30 days or less. This includes, without limitation, hotels, motels, tourist homes, vacation rentals by owner, houses or courts, lodging houses, inns, hostels, rooming houses, bed and breakfasts, short-term vacation rentals or other buildings where rooms are furnished for consideration. It does not include hospitals, sanitariums or nursing homes.

Consideration means the cost of the room in a hotel only if the room is ordinarily used for sleeping, and not including the cost of any food served or personal services rendered to the occupant of such room not related to the cleaning and readying of such room for occupancy.

Tax Rates

The Town of Fairview’s Hotel Occupancy Tax rate is 7%. The Town’s tax is in addition to the 6% rate imposed by the State of Texas, which must be remitted separately to the State.
