Tourist Development Tax
Tourist Development Tax (TDT) strengthens our local economy by supporting Palm Beach County's tourism industry. Anyone who offers accommodations for short term rental (six months or less) is required to collect Tourist Development Tax which is 6% of total taxable rental receipts. TDT is an add-on tax and is collected from the tenant at the time rent or accommodation charges are collected. TDT is paid in addition to state sales tax.
