Tourist tax

Tourist tax is paid by all people over the age of 18 who are paying to stay in the territory of Mimizan Community of Communes, that is, anyone staying in a hotel, holiday let, campsite, B&B, holiday resort, tourist residence or motorhome for one or more nights.

Tourist tax is payable for all stays taking place between 15 June and 30 September, from check-in day to check-out day.

The rate varies according to the category of accommodation in which you are staying.

The tourist tax is received by the accommodation provider, who then pays it to the tourist tax department of Mimizan Community of Communes.

The following are exempt from tourist tax:

A) minors;

B) people employed on a seasonal work contract in the Community of Communes;

C) people benefiting from emergency accommodation or temporary rehousing;

D) people occupying premises where the rent is less than the amount determined by the community council.

The tax amount is forwarded in full minus 10% (departmental portion) to the Mimizan Intercommunal Tourist Office (OIT). The tourist tax is the OIT’s main source of income.
