Helpful Tourist Development Tax Information
Broward County’s Tourist Development Tax is a local sales tax of 6 percent, which is due on the total amount received for the rental of residential properties. The tax applies to residential rentals for periods of six months or less. Long term rentals are taxable for the first six months of continuous occupancy unless they are subject to a written lease for a period greater than six months.
The tax should be collected from the tenant by the landlord and remitted to the Broward County Records Taxes and Treasury Division – Tourist Development Tax Section.
