Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT)

Per Chapter 3.18 (Transient Occupancy Tax) of the Union City Municipal Code, each hotel in Union City is required to collect from their guests a transient occupancy tax (TOT) based on the guest’s daily room rate. The total of these TOT payments collected are then reported and remitted by each hotel to the City of Union City on a quarterly basis. The following table details Union City’s TOT reporting and remittance schedule. Please note that payments made by a hotel after TOT due date for a quarter are considered late on first day after TOT due date and are subject to a penalty fee of 10% per month delinquent:
