Per Woodruff Town Ordinance, sec. 67-22, Accommodations Tax, a room tax is imposed on the privilege and service of furnishing rooms or lodging to transients.

Every person and organization furnishing rooms or lodging must obtain a permit from the Town of Woodruff by filing a Room Tax Permit Application with the Town Treasurer. Permits are issued annually, and are in effect from July 1 of that year until June 30 of the following year. The permit must be displayed in a conspicuous location at the place of business for which is has been issued.
Each year after issuance, room tax permit holders are required to fill out an updated permit application and submit it to the Town of Woodruff Treasurer before July 1st of that year. Failure to comply will result in revocation of the room tax permit.
In addition, Quarterly Room Tax forms must be filled out and returned to the Town Treasurer on a timely basis, every quarter, whether you have rentals or not. A written notice will be sent to the permit holder giving them 10 days to remit the form and any payment due. If a permit holder fails to make a payment or file a report, the matter will be turned over to the Town's attorney. Their permit will be suspended and a fine of up to $250 per day may be imposed for this violation.
