Transient Rental Taxes - Tourist Development Tax


On June 19, 2019, the Pasco County Board of County Commissioners adopted Ordinance 19-23, authorizing the Pasco Tax Collector to collect and administer the tourist development tax. This tax was previously collected by the Florida Department of Revenue. On April 5, 2022, the Pasco County Board of County Commissioners approved Ordinance 22-15, increasing the tourist development tax rate for Pasco County from 4% to 5%. This change will be effective for rental stays as of June 1, 2022.

The Pasco County tourist development tax collected on or after October 1, 2019, must be reported and remitted to the Pasco Tax Collector online through the Tourist Express system or by mail. Click here to register online or click here for a paper application download.
