Virginia Tax Guidelines: Application of Retail Sales and Use Tax to Sales of Accommodations Facilitated by Accommodations Intermediaries

Guidelines for the Application of the Retail Sales and Use Tax to Sales of Accommodations Facilitated by Accommodations Intermediaries

Effective September 1, 2021, Senate Bill 1398 (2021 Acts of Assembly, Special Session I, Chapter 383) changes the application of the Retail Sales and Use Tax to sales of accommodations facilitated by accommodations intermediaries. The legislation makes similar changes to the local transient occupancy tax. Additionally, these changes will apply to the state imposed transient occupancy taxes that fund transportation purposes in certain localities under Va. Code § 58.1-1743 and Va. Code § 58.1-1744 because these taxes are administered by local governments in the same manner as their local transient occupancy taxes. Virginia Tax has issued guidelines to provide processes and procedures for implementing the provisions of Va. Code §§ 58.1-602, 58.1-603, and 58.1-612.2, relating to the Retail Sales and Use Taxation of accommodations, as required by Senate Bill 1398. 

The Guidelines are available in the Guidance Documents section of the Virginia Tax website. For additional information or questions, contact the Virginia Tax Business Customer Service hotline at 804.367.8037.
