We just wanted to give everyone an update concerning Room Tax: 

Our office worked with the Legislature and made the decision to delay the Room Tax payment. Although the actual tax does not have to be submitted at this time (it will be due April 20, 2020 unless otherwise stated), the submission form does need to be submitted.  We strongly encourage you to send that in via email to or in the mail.  If the submission form is received after March 20, 2020 you will not be charged any late fees at this time. 

If you do not have the ability to sign and scan the form to send via email that is not a problem; we are able to accept an unsigned form at this time and you will just need to send a signed copy in with the tax when it is submitted in April. 

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to call.
