Transient Lodging Tax Program

Airbnb & HomeAway: As of July 1, 2018, both Airbnb and HomeAway will collect and remit transient lodging taxes to the City on behalf of all hosts. This eliminates the need for each host to collect and remit taxes to the City. All hosts are required to secure a business license.

Other Platforms: Hosts using other platforms such as VRBO will be required to register as a transient lodging provider and remit tax accordingly. Registration forms are below. All hosts are required to secure a business license.

Legislature: In 2013, the Oregon Legislature enacted Oregon House Bill 2656, which made two important changes to the state law on transient lodging tax. First, the tax must be paid on the full retail price of a room, including any charges added to the price. Second, transient lodging intermediaries, or “online travel companies” that take payment for the rooms they book must remit the tax directly to the state and local jurisdictions on those transactions, rather than forwarding that payment to the hotel.

The City of Redmond is implementing this change and has made the necessary revisions to the appropriate forms and information. To assist you with this change, please review the forms listed below.
