Visitors and hoteliers alike will find a warm welcome in the City of El Segundo. We place a high value on our relationships with the local hospitality community, which is why our tax procedures are designed to make remitting taxes quick and easy.

El Segundo has contracted with The HdL Companies to provide business-friendly assistance with filing and paying Transient Occupancy Taxes. The HdL Support Center can assist you with any aspect of transient occupancy tax, including return filing, payment, compliance and general support for your tax filing needs.

Please note:

  • Any person who occupies or is entitled to occupancy for 30 days or less is defined as a transient
  • If your property is located within the City of El Segundo and is rented to transient occupants for 30 calendar days or less, you must register, collect and remit the TOT to the City of El Segundo
  • Our TOT, applicable to all properties rented to transients, is currently 12%, one of the lowest in Los Angeles County

Transient occupancy tax returns may be submitted online or by U.S. mail.
