Nevada 12% Occupancy Tax - Advice Needed

Does anyone know much about the 12% Occupancy tax in Clark County. I'm about to book a suite at Vdara for a months stay through luxury suites international. However the operator saying I have to pay 12% Occupancy tax. They've clarified that the 2nd month and beyond is not taxed however the first month is. I done a bit of googling and the tax laws seem to indicate that stays of 30 days or more are exempt from occupancy tax, indicating that my stay being a month should be exempt.

Is there anyone who could shed further light on the issue.
Cheers

Re: Nevada 12% Occupancy Tax - Advice Needed

There doesn't appear to be a conflict between what you've been told and what you found on Google. I won't vouch for the truth of either one, but it's perfectly common in the U.S. for things beyond a certain amount to be exempt, meaning that ONLY the exceeding portion is exempt.

So if there's a 12% tax on the first 30 days, you get charged +12% for the first 30 days and no extra charge for each subsequent day. If there's a 7% tax on the first $100,000 of your income, then you pay $7,000 for the first $100,000 and no extra tax if you make more.

It's just a way of capping off the taxes.

The operator is correct.

From the code:

"Permanent resident" means any individual who has or shall have the right of occupancy in a sleeping room/space at the same transient lodging establishment for thirty-one consecutive days or more, and for whom rent is exempt from the transient lodging tax on the thirty-first day and every consecutive day thereafter, provided the individual continues to occupy or continues the right to occupy a sleeping room/space at the same transient lodging establishment.

For clarification... 4.08.050(b) States you are exempt from the occupancy tax after you become permanent resident status.

P.S. Have a fun and profitable trip!
