Local taxing authority. Equalizes city taxing authority and county taxing authority by granting a county the same authority available to impose excise taxes on cigarettes, admissions, transient room rentals, meals, and travel campgrounds without limitation on the rate that may be imposed. The bill retains a restriction that applies to counties under current law and requires that any transient occupancy tax revenue attributable to a rate of between two and five percent must be used for tourism marketing. The bill directs the Division of Legislative Services to convene a work group to develop recommendations as to any additional legislative changes that may be needed to effectuate the provisions of the bill. This bill was incorporated into SB 588. Read the Bill »
