The operator shall collect the tax at the same time as the rent is collected from the transient. The amount of the tax shall be separately stated from the amount of the rent charged, and each transient shall receive a receipt for payment from the operator. Operators shall not 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 the tax will not be added to the rent or that, if added, any part will be refunded except in the manner provided herein.
