Found some very nice homes to rent for family vacation, but I am in disbelief about this borderline criminal 12.75% tax on rentals. That is extreme to say the least. I always thought renting a vacation home in OBX was a budget-friendly option, but now thinking about going elsewhere. When did this tax start and has it always been this high? Coming from NJ, I thought we fleeced beach goers the worst with our beach badge garbage, but you may have NJ beat here. You OBX realtors/owners happy about this? Thinking Lake George NY might get my vacation $$ this year.
Awesome, taxes are due today.@bobbyg & @W&M OBX - The occupancy tax rate has not changed over the past two years so it's still relevant to discuss. Thanks for nothing.Just copied and pasted someones tripadvisor post hoping to get some good opinions/information and I greatly appreciate those replies Local governments imposing higher than normal taxes for lodging and meals can and will reduce the number visitors and $$$$ spent in those communities. Chesapeake VA comes to mind as a city that's well known for their higher than normal meals tax. As a result, I avoid eating there when passing through. Anybody else?
