Taxes on room rentals.  Provides that retail sales and hotel taxes on transient room rentals are computed based upon the total charges or the total price paid for the use or possession of the room. For those cases in which a hotel or similar establishment contracts with an agent or other party to collect the retail sales and hotel taxes, the bill would require the agent or other party to separately state the taxes on the bill or invoice and to collect the taxes based upon the total charges or the total price paid for the use or possession of the room.
