Each operator shall collect the tax imposed by this chapter, to the same extent and at the same time as the rent is collected from every transient. The amount of tax shall be separately stated from the amount of the rent charged, and each transient shall, upon demand, receive a receipt for payment from the operator. No operator of a hotel shall advertise or state in any manner, whether directly or indirectly, that the tax or any part thereof will be assumed or absorbed by the operator, or that it will not be added to the rent, or that, if added, any part will be refunded except in the manner hereafter provided. Every operator required to collect the tax imposed herein shall be entitled to retain five percent (5%) of all taxes collected to defray the costs of collections and remittance. (Ord. 2632, amended, 1991; Ord. 1907, amended, 1977)
