Yes it's just another name for it. I think I will leave the rates the same and clarify what the taxes are. Taxws are one thing we can't control.Personally, I don't think so. Then it makes your rate appear higher. I would just post my room rate and say + taxes. Afterall, the taxes aren't your fault and you have no control over them. :-(
Is hospitality tax same as lodging tax???.
Yup, I agree. Here in our little county of the world we have a 2% Convention and Visitors Bureau Assessment on top of 6% sales tax. And that is how we put it in the info online and our brochure. Break it up. they won't complain, it isn't your fault.Maybe psychologically, but you are going to get that guest who does the calculations and wonders why the 7% tax isn't taken on the whole amount of the stated room rate. And if you tax the stated rate, you're taxing on taxes.
So break the tax rate up: 6% hospitality tax (BAD name for a tax, BTW) + 7% state tax.
That lloks less imposing than just saying 13% tax..
