Description

To record the payment or reimbursement of state hotel occupancy taxes charged to a state employee by a commercial lodging establishment inside South Padre Island city limits. This code may not be used for local (county, city, municipal) hotel occupancy taxes paid inside South Padre Island (7105). The Comptroller of Public Accounts refunds expenditures made under this code to the paying state agencies on a quarterly basis, See TEX. TAX CODE ANN. §§ 156.103, 156.154. Therefore this code may be used only for state hotel occupancy taxes paid Inside South Padre Island city limits. Institutions of Higher Education may not use this code because they are exempt from paying state hotel occupancy taxes.

Note

This code was created as a result of legislation which included South Padre Island as a barrier Island entitled to a refund of a portion of the state hotel occupancy taxes paid within its limits. See TEX. TAX CODE ANN. § 156.2512. The comptroller records agency expenses for state hotel occupancy taxes separately to assist with refunding the agencies and with reducing allocations of revenue to each barrier island by amounts refunded to the agencies.

This code does NOT include:

  • Local hotel occupancy taxes during in-state travel (7105)
  • Hotel occupancy taxes paid during out-of-state travel (7115)
  • State hotel occupancy taxes outside Galveston, Port Aransas and South Padre Island city limits (7135)
