Travel Intermediaries Required to Collect and Pay Kentucky Sales Tax

Beginning October 1, 2017, travel intermediaries will be required to pay sales tax collected on hotel bookings directly to the Kentucky Department of Revenue.

The Kentucky Department of Revenue recently released guidance regarding the payment of sales tax on hotel bookings reserved through a travel intermediary. A travel intermediary is a third party that links a customer to an available hotel and takes payment for the booking.

The intermediary collecting the payment for the booking is a retailer subject to Kentucky sales tax. Currently, travel intermediaries are required to forward any sales tax collected from the booking to the hotel in which the booking is made. Beginning October 1, 2017, travel intermediaries will be required to pay sales tax directly to the Department of Revenue.
