Short-Term Rentals

The Town of Flower Mound requires short-term rentals (STRs) operating within the Town to be registered with the Town and remit the Town's adopted hotel occupancy tax rate of 7% to rentals booked at their property. In order to facilitate this process, beginning in November of 2023, the Town partnered with GovOS, a third-party vendor that manages and provides a convenient, paperless, online platform for STR operators to meet these requirements. 


If your short-term rental has not yet registered with the Town of Flower Mound, please visit to register or log in to your account.

Reporting Requirements

  • Every person required to collect the Hotel Occupancy Tax must complete a tax form in their GovOS profile showing the consideration paid for all room occupancies in the preceding month and the amount of the tax collected on the occupancies. A payment in the amount of the tax collected will be required once the form is complete.
  • Tax forms and payments are due on the fifteenth of the month following each month in which the tax is earned. A tax form is required even if no taxes are collected during the month.
  • If the due date falls on a weekend or holiday, the next business day is considered the due date. 
  • A person failing to pay the tax by the 25th day of the month following the month in which the tax is earned shall pay 15 percent of the tax due as a penalty. Delinquent taxes draw interest at the rate of ten percent per year beginning 30 days from the date the tax is due.
  • Every person collecting this tax may deduct a 1 percent collection fee from the gross amount of tax collected on all occupancies in the preceding month if the tax is paid to and received no later than the fifteenth day of the month following the month in which the tax is required to be collected.
  • Complete and detailed records must be kept of all receipts reported, and exemptions or reimbursements claimed so that returns can be verified by a Town auditor. The Town may request these records or audit an organization at any time.
