The City of Tempe wants to increase the hotel tax from 3% to 5% to increase the amount of money spent on promotions via the Tempe Convention and Visitors Bureau. Why hotels can't collect money without relying on city tax collection is not explained.
Luckily the Goldwater Institute has put out a memo on why raising taxes is not a good idea. Who knew?
I will be voting against Proposition 400 so that hotel operators in Tempe can offer their customers lower prices.
