Since January 1, 2023, the Rumilly Terre de Savoie Community of Communes has been collecting the actual tourist tax from commercial accommodation in the territory, classified or unclassified.
All of the revenue from this tax is donated to the Rumilly-Albanais Tourist Office, which devotes it exclusively to the promotion and development of tourism.

Who pays the tourist tax?
In accordance with article L2333-29 of the General Code of Territorial Communities, the tourist tax is established on people who are not domiciled in the municipality.
The taxable person pays the tourist tax to the host who will transfer all the taxes collected to the community on his behalf.
Are exempt:
- Minors
- Holders of a seasonal work contract employed in one of the municipalities of the community
-People benefiting from emergency accommodation or temporary rehousing
-People who occupy premises whose rent is less than €1 per night

Who collects the tourist tax?
All accommodation is concerned when the stay is paid for (even if it is the main residence of the host).
The accommodation provider collects the tourist tax at the rate in force at the time of the stay, before the departure of the persons accommodated.

The case of digital operators (e.g. Airbnb, Booking, Le bon coin, etc.)
Since January 1, 2019, the actual tourist tax is compulsorily collected by digital operators provided that they are payment intermediaries on behalf of non-professional rental companies.
For overnight stays marketed through them, it is the operators who collect the tax and pay the sums to the service managing the tourist tax in the territory.
If you go exclusively through these operators, you must still create your account on the tourist tax portal so that you are well referenced.

When and how to pay the tourist tax?
Hosts must declare at the beginning of each month the number of nights spent in their establishment the previous month, via the electronic declaration platform:
A quarterly recovery is planned with payment to be sent before:

  • May 31 for taxes collected from January 1 to April 30
  • September 30 for taxes collected from May 1 to August 31
  • January 31 for taxes collected from September 1 to December 31

Accessible to all, the electronic declaration platform has all the useful information on the tourist tax. This online space also allows accommodation providers to calculate, declare and pay the amount of the tourist tax.

The Tourist Office is your contact for all questions concerning the tourist tax.
