Provide Municipalities Additional Sales Tax Revenue from Lodging Sales
|Sponsor:||Representative Maureen Terry, House 26|
|Bill #:||LD 609|
UPDATE: This bill has been amended to increased the lodging tax from 9% to 10%.
This bill provides an incremental sales tax of 1% for those sales currently subject to the 9% sales tax on lodging. The incremental revenue, after reduction for administrative costs, is returned to the municipality or unorganized territory to which the revenue is attributable. The amount received may not be used to reduce any other state aid or revenue sharing to municipalities or the unorganized territory.
