Transient Occupancy Tax
The Solano County Treasurer-Tax Collector-County Clerk's Office is responsible for the administration and collection of transient occupancy tax (TOT) for establishments located in the unincorporated areas of the county. If you own or operate a property as a rental in the unincorporated area of the county, you are responsible for collecting and remitting TOT for guests that stay 30 days or less. You are also responsible for registering and obtaining a TOT certificate from our office. The "Transient Occupancy Registration Certificate" must be posted at all times in a conspicuous place on the premises. For examples of rental properties subject to the TOT see Solano County code chapter 11-20(a).

TOT is currently 5% of the rent and must be collected by the property's operator from the guest at the time of payment. TOT must be reported and paid to our office by the operator, and it is due within one calendar month of the close of each reporting period. To be considered timely, TOT payments must be received or United States Postal Service (USPS) postmarked by the due date to avoid penalties and interest. If a payment is received after the due date with a late or missing postmark, the payment is considered late, and penalties will be imposed in accordance with Solano County code chapter 11-26.
