BILL NUMBER: SB 1292, SD-1
INTRODUCED BY: Senate Committees on Energy, Economic Development, and Tourism and Commerce, Consumer Protection, and Health
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Allows a transient accommodations broker to serve as a collection agent for general excise and transient accommodations taxes. This type of arrangement would probably enhance collection of taxes because of the difficulty of policing individual owners. However, the number of caveats, conditions, and restrictions that are placed on the broker signing up for this program is so large that it is unlikely that any broker in its right mind would sign up. If no broker is motivated to sign up, this legislation will accomplish nothing.
