Transient Occupancy Tax Information
Yountville's Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) rate is 13%, and revenues are collected throughout the fiscal year on a monthly basis. Each TOT Report includes current and historical revenue, occupancy rate and average room-rate data for our hotel and inn rooms in aggregate. Additionally, each report includes historical data from fiscal year 1991-92 forward. The Town is not permitted to disclose such data for specific inns because it is proprietary business information.
**New** Effective July 1, 2022, TOT returns and payments are to be submitted through the new online OpenGov portal. Please visit OpenGov Yountville Website, click "Finance Department", and select the Transient Occupancy Tax Return form to get started.
For questions on this new process, please contact Kyle Batista, Financial Analyst, or Celia King, Finance Director, at the Town of Yountville.
