Default Re: Hotel Stay Tax Exempt After 30 Days Loopholes

The hotel checks the person out weekly to avoid creating a lease tenancy which would then require standard eviction proceedings for non payment etc... The tax law that addresses the issue not being a month to month tenancy for tax purposes is this:
Sec. 156.101. EXCEPTION--PERMANENT RESIDENT. This chapter does not impose a tax on a person who has the right to use or possess a room in a hotel for at least 30 consecutive days, so long as there is no interruption of payment for the period.
Due to a recent promotion, I should now be referred to as Major Obvious.

I would not be trying to provide information and knowledge if I did not sympathize.

Some days it is just not worth chewing through the restraints to face life.

Guests who usually stay for extended periods usually get a break on the price (25-50% off in some cases) and part of receiving that rate is to accept you will be checked out every 7 days, and that you will be required to pay tax.

You are right, what the hotel does is irrelevant to your life because it is not illegal, it is just a smart business practice. In fact, hotels do not like having guests live at their hotels, we don't get a higher return like leisure or business guests and the fact is that people get annoying after a while, which is evident in this grumpy and cheap person posting a complaint about not paying taxes. PAY YOUR TAXES
I guess weaseling out of tax code set up by your legislators is called "good business practice" now.

Re: Hotel Stay Tax Exempt After 30 Days Loopholes

The problem is that anyone that stays in a Hotel /Motel for 30 plus days is exempt for the tax . Which you are also suppose get your taxes that has already been paid back . It is a lot easier to do if you have a letter your just video tape your checking in that you plan on staying for 30 plus days . A on going American problem is letting Foreigners take advantage of us and our country ! Think about it ... 200 - 300 a month in taxes on a month stay not being paid even to the state ! The law is very clear on this matter . A little research goes a long ways .
