Also known as the “Bed Tax,” the Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) is added on the rent charged to transient guests. They apply to hotels, motels, AirB&B as well as private home rentals. In Los Angeles County, TOT is nearly 12%.
Calculating our upcoming healthcare appointments, we informed the ESA management our intention to stay for another month or longer. That’s when we learned that after a month plus a day, our status changes to “resident”. So long as our booking with ESA is consecutive, the TOT won’t be added.
Today we transferred rooms to a location within the complex where the WiFi signal is steady and more reliable. J.J. is happy that he does not have to step out in the corridor to look for a WiFi connection.
