The Town of Eagle occupation tax is levied on the provision of lodging upon every person or business that furnishes any hotel room, motel room, lodging room, motor hotel room, guest house room or other similar accommodation for consideration for less than 1 month or 30 consecutive days within the Town of Eagle in the amount of 6% of net Lodging Sales.
Per the Town of Eagle Ordinance 06. Series 2020, this includes all short-term rentals such as guest rooms and whole house rentals, that would be sold/provided through sites such as AirBNB, VRBO, etc.
Lodging occupancy tax has a dual purpose. Fifty percent of taxes collected is allocated to the Town’s Open Space Fund to preserve and protect natural open space areas and wildlife habitat, while also providing outdoor recreation opportunities for Eagle citizens and visitors. The other fifty percent is allocated to fund Town marketing and events that bring visitors to the Town of Eagle.
A short-term rental permit is required for any lodging providers in the Town of Eagle. These permits are due annually by December 31st. There is no fee for a short-term rental permit.
All lodging tax is remitted directly to the Town of Eagle. Lodging Tax Forms must be filled out regardless if any income was generated and remittance forms are due by the 10th of the month for the preceding month.
A penalty in the amount of 10% of the tax due or the sum of $10.00, whichever is greater, shall be imposed upon the vendor and become due in the event the tax is not remitted by the 10th of the month. If the 10th falls on a Saturday or Sunday, the payment is due the following Monday. Interest at 18% per annum (1.5% per month) shall accrue on the unpaid balance.
