Placer County offers training for transient occupancy tax audits

Published on September 01, 2015

Ahead of planned audits of transient occupancy tax collections this fall in the Lake Tahoe area and surrounding region, the Placer County Auditor-Controller’s Office will conduct two “How to Survive a TOT Audit” training events in September.  

The transient occupancy tax is a rental tax paid by lodging guests for stays of fewer than 30 days. Revenues from TOT are used to help fund projects that benefit the county as a whole, and are collected by property managers and lodging operators on behalf of the county.

“The TOT is really important source of funding for us to continue providing the amenities that make Placer County and Lake Tahoe such nice places to live and visit,” said Andy Sisk, Placer County Auditor-Controller. “We rely on hosts to collect it for us, so we want to make sure we’re doing everything we can to ensure compliance with the county TOT ordinance.”
