The Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration recently ruled that hotel cancellation and no-show fees are not taxable.

The taxpayer was a hotel that contracted with online travel companies. The hotel charged separately stated fees for cancellations and no-shows.

Arkansas taxes the service of furnishing a guest room, suite, or other accommodation by a hotel to a transient guest. Online travel companies are not subject the sales or tourism tax for furnishing rooms to transient guests. They only pay tax on the contract fees they pay to the hotels located in Arkansas. Additionally, Arkansas ruled that cancellation, no-show, and other similar types of fees are not taxable. The fees are not taxable because, as long as they are separately stated from the charges for the rooms, the fees are not for taxable services such as furnishing rooms.
