Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT)

Aloha Everyone,

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.

Aloha -- Cathi
