Lodging Tax is levied on the renting or furnishing of any room, lodging, or accommodation for a period less than 180 days. Charges for rooms, lodgings or accommodations provided for a period of 180 consecutive days or more in the same place are exempt from Tuscaloosa Lodging tax but may become taxable under Tuscaloosa Rental License Tax.
Lodging Tax is paid monthly and is due by the 20th of the following month. Any Lodging Tax paid after this date will accrue additional penalties and interest. Lodging Tax may be paid online via My Alabama Taxes (https://myalabamataxes.alabama.gov/) or by submitting the form available on our Forms Page (Link to Forms Page).
