Popular Mexican destinations may rise their lodging tax

Published on : Friday, April 21, 2017

MexicoIn a highly popular area of Mexico, hotel operators may soon have to deal with an increase in the lodging tax.

 

Andrea Lolito, vice president of the Hotel Association of the Riviera Maya, lamented that the government seeks to increase the lodging tax to 4%, affecting those who are already taxed but allowed to operate unregulated to vacation rentals even though in the last two years it has been announced that they will make them tax, even recently through a normative modification.

 

The report states that whispers of an increase took place at the industry gathering Tourism Tianguis of Acapulco.

 

At the time, hoteliers fought the notion but their protest, according to Tourism Promotion Trust of the Riviera Maya, Dario Flota Ocampo, wasn’t done in an official manner so it looks as though the measure will ultimately go through.

 

At the heart of the matter are some 5,000 accommodations that, according to hotel operators, have been left to operate without paying taxes.

 

The report also signals the impetus behind the recent tax surge, citing that the CCE del Caribe has long sought funds for “infrastructure investment and urban development.”

 

There is no mention in the report when a lodging tax increase will take place but notes government officials continue to look at the possibility.
