Representative Larry Mitchell (D) has introduced a bill that would permit county governments to impose and collect into their own coffers a lodging tax or no more than 3 percent. This tax would apply to hotels, motels and tourist homes (i.e. homes that are rented out as vacation rentals through such services like HomeAway, AirBNB, etc). The bill was released from the House Administration Committee yesterday, and now awaits a vote on the floor in the House.
