Background and business need
A principal tax collecting agency in the U.S. state was in charge of administering the state's tax laws and collection of state taxes for nearly 40 programs including 1.8% of Transient Lodging rent.
Without adequate data about the transient lodging facilities (revenue, number of rooms, exact locations, etc.) the tax collecting authority faced a challenge in monitoring whether the Transient Lodging facilities are paying tax to the government as per the occupancy and required standards.
The Department of revenue was suspecting the lodging facilities to be forging the occupancy rate by altering the number of rented spaces booked ( occupancy rate is calculated as the ratio of rented or used space to the total amount of available space).
The pressing need to aggregate information for these different categories got them to Xtract.io and they decided to implement it for their business.
