Vacation Rental and AirBNB Tax Collections

Airbnb will collect and remit occupancy taxes in Twentynine Palms, CA

If you have vacation rental property in Wonder Valley listed on AirBNB, you may have received a notice from them that a transient occupancy tax ("TOT") and a Tourism Business Improvement District (“TBID”) Assessment will be collected from your guests and paid to Twentynine Palms.

Wonder Valley shares a zip code with Twentynine Palms (92277) so this notice was probably sent to all VR owner/managers in the area, including those in Wonder Valley.

We, in Wonder Valley, are an unincorporated area and are under the governance of the County of San Bernardino and not Twentynine Palms. No properties in Wonder Valley should be assessed TOT or TBID taxes to be paid to the City of Twentynine Palms. If this happens to you, please notify your MAC Delegate, Teresa Sitz, at
