Businesses which operate a hotel, motel, short-term rental, inn, lodge, tourist camp, tourist cabin, bed and breakfast or similar are required to collect a tax from each person occupying accommodations. These excise taxes are required to be remitted to the City on or before the 20th day of each month, for the preceding calendar month, accompanied by a completed Hotel/Motel/Short-term Rental Occupancy Tax Return.
When paid on or before the 20th of the month, the licensee may deduct and retain three percent of the tax collected as a vendor’s credit. Failure to pay by the due date will result in the loss of the vendor’s credit and incur penalties and interest as detailed on the tax return form.
Information on tax rates can be found on the tax return form.
Returns can be mailed with payment by check to:
City of Sandy Springs
ATTN: Business Occupation and Excise Tax Division
1 Galambos Way
Sandy Springs, GA 30328
If you require assistance filing your return/s, please visit the Revenue Desk at City Hall. Revenue in-person services are available by appointment only.
