Lodging Tax

The City of Martinsville levies a transient lodging tax on every hotel, motel, tourist home, short-term rental or other lodging places that furnish lodging for compensation to any person on a transient basis (90 consecutive days or less). Those entities providing such services are required to collect 2% of the total lodging bill. Lodging businesses collect the tax in trust for the City of Martinsville.

The businesses are required to register with the Commissioner of the Revenue and file the appropriate returns by the twentieth day of each month.
