Arlington delegation is all set to preserve tourism tax authority in the New Year

Arlington delegationWhen the matter comes to the capacity of the country to tax the stays in hotels and utilize the amount for tourism promotional work, the members of the Arlington delegation to the General Assembly emerge almost prepared.

The always-contentious measure comes up for evaluation in Richmond in the early months of 2018, two years later the General Assembly reluctantly gave back, for a 24-month period, the ability of Arlington to entail tax.

For the forthcoming session that starts in impending January and will continue for sixty days, “we’re putting in a bill to lift that sunset [provision],” said Del. Patrick Hope (D-47th), who will head the attempt in juxtaposition with state Sen. Janet Howell (D-32nd).

It might be a tough task: from the time the General Assembly first accepted Arlington’s surtax imposition on hotel stays in the early 1990s, it has added time limits. The outcome: After each couple of years, Arlington needs to come hand in hand to the legislature to look for restoration.

And it might be a walk on a tightrope, as looking for a tax minus the sunset possibly could put in danger the measure completely. As “special” legislation (because it applies just to one jurisdiction), the customers require to win a two-thirds majority in every house to send the bill to the desk of the governor.
