Tax the border, not the beds, says Auckland Chamber of Commerce
from New Zeland Herald
Imposing a visitor tax at New Zealand's border rather taxing the accommodation sector is the fairest way of ensuring tourists contribute to cover their costs, the Auckland Chamber of Commerce says. Auckland Mayor Phil Goff previously outlined a plan to implement a visitor levy on hotels and accommodation, a scheme which he said could raise up to $30 million.
