Lodging Tax

Remittances are recorded on the Commissioner of the Revenue transient occupancy forms and submitted by person or via mail. 

Uniform Statewide Transient Occupancy Tax Return

Beginning October 1, 2022, third party accommodations intermediaries became responsible for filing and paying local lodgings taxes in Virginia. In an effort to promote uniformity among localities, the Commissioner of the Revenue Association of Virginia developed a TOT filing form that can be remitted to any locality in the Commonwealth. Its use is not limited to accommodations intermediaries, however. Anyone wishing to file their Transient Occupancy Tax manually may use this fillable pdf form and submit it with a check.
