Occupancy Tax


Every operator who is required to collect the occupancy tax must register with the Yates County Department of Finance by filing an application for a Certificate of Authority.

Certificate of Authority:

The Certificate of Authority issued by the Yates County Department of Finance after an operator submits a registration. This document empowers the operator to collect the occupancy tax. The Certificate must be prominently displayed in a manner such that it is clearly visible to all occupants. The Certificate is non-transferable and shall be surrendered to the Yates County Department of Finance immediately upon end/close of business or transfer of ownership.
