Collections are made through the Phelps County Collector's office.

This is a 3% "Lodging" Tax on all Hotels, Motels, Inns, and Lodges in the city limits, based on gross receipts derived from "transient guests for sleeping accommodations" (Article VI of Chapter 37, Rolla Municipal Code). All revenues received from this tax are used by the City for promoting the City as a convention, visitor and tourist center.
