Getting audited by the city on TOT?
Webinar hosted October 26, 2022

Getting audited for taxes can be one of the most stressful experiences a person can go through. For a hotel, this involves taking time and resources away from actually running your hotel and compiling records spanning several years. While we cannot completely take away the stress, we can alleviate some of it by exposing you to professionals with experience on what to expect.

Mitchell Bryk, a noted tax consultant specializing in hotel-related transactions, will go over the current efforts by municipalities to collect Transient Occupancy Taxes from reservations booked through Online Travel Companies (OTCs). He covers the audit process, applicable contracts, legislation & litigation, terminology, rate parity and the OTC addendum, as well as several San Diego specifics.
