Transient Accommodations Tax Continues To Be a Threat to Owners  

By ARDA State Affairs

September 18, 2013 

Transient accommodations tax (TAT) proposals continue to pop up on local and state legislative agendas around the country keeping ARDA State Affairs & ARDA-ROC busy.

Operating on deficits, state legislatures see TATs as way to generate revenue. Despite these efforts, Hawaii is currently the only state to tax timeshare owners occupying their own unit, or exchange guests occupying a unit swapped with another owner.

ARDA and ARDA-ROC’s position continues to be that the use of a timeshare unit by an owner or exchange guest should not be taxed like a rental, and we oppose efforts to impose such taxes on an occupancy that generates no revenues. From time to time, we will need to immediately inform impacted owners in specific states or local jurisdictions to voice their concern to local lawmakers. It is our intent to keep HOAs informed of legislation so should the need arise, we can quickly mobilize owners.

For those who would like further information on the issue of TATs and the impact on owners, developers and vacation products in general, a policy brief is available on ARDA-ROC’s website.
