17 NCAC 07B .1201          TAXABILITY OF GROSS RECEIPTS

(a)  Gross receipts derived from the rental of any room or

rooms, lodgings or accommodations furnished by any hotel, motel, inn, tourist

camp, tourist cabin and any private residence, condominium (time share and

interval ownership properties), cottage or any other place in which rooms,

lodgings or accommodations are furnished to transients for consideration are

subject to the general rate of State tax and any applicable local sales or use

tax, except as set forth in Paragraphs (b) and (c) of this Rule or as otherwise

provided by the statute. 

(b)  Receipts derived from the rental of any room, lodging

or accommodation to the same person for a period of 90 continuous days or more

are not subject to the tax, and the tax collected from any person prior to the

accumulation of such 90 continuous days of occupancy by said person shall be

refunded to such person by the retailer collecting the same. A retailer

actually making any such refund of tax which he has paid to the department may

claim credit for the tax so refunded on a subsequent return filed by him with

the department.

(c)  Receipts derived from an occasional or isolated rental

of a private residence or cottage by the owner for less than a total of 15 days

in a calendar year are not subject to sales tax.  The less than 15 days

exclusion is applicable only to those private residences and cottages which are

not made available for rental to transients.  If the private residence or

cottage is generally or routinely made available by the owner for rental to transients,

the less than 15 days exclusion is not applicable to such rentals and all

receipts there from are taxable without regard to the aforementioned period. 

When private residences and cottages are listed with real estate agents,

including "real estate brokers" as defined in G.S. 93A‑2, for

rental to transients, such private residences and cottages are deemed to be

generally available for rental to transients and the less than 15 days

exclusion is not applicable to any receipts from such rentals to transients.

(d)  Sales of time share or interval ownership property

which can be transferred by estate, gift or devise pursuant to deeds or

documents under which the owners have a fixed and continuing right to occupy

such units during a specified period of time in the same manner as a person who

owns or is buying a private residence or cottage are considered to be sales of

real property not subject to sales or use tax.  When owners of interval

ownership and time share property do not occupy the property but rent it to

transients or place the property in the hands of a rental agent, including

"real estate brokers" as defined in G.S. 93A‑2, for rental on

their behalf to transients, such receipts are subject to sales tax and the less

than 15 days exclusion is not applicable to any receipts from such rentals as

explained in Paragraph (c) of this Rule.
