COVID-19: protecting public health
- 1st Quarter WORD taxes (January – March 2020) have been deferred until July 20, 2020. No payments or reporting for the 1st quarter are due until that time.
- Effective April 15, the WORD tax rate for 2nd Quarter taxes (April – June 2020) has been reduced to zero. This means that businesses do not have to collect or remit any taxes from customers for the second quarter.
We are hopeful that these steps will aid local businesses and the visiting public to recover from the current impact of restrictions.
The processing fee to pay with a credit card is 2.4 percent. There is no charge for online payments made with an e-check. Businesses reporting zeros can also remit a tax form online.
Collection Agreements allow Third-Party Websites (TWP) to collect and remit lodging WORD taxes on behalf of the permit holder. However, lodging permit holders are required to submit an account summary with revenue collected from these TPW. The account summary must display the company name, total revenue, and appropriate date range.
At this time WORD has a collection agreement with the following Third-Party Websites:
- Homeaway Family
