Humboldt County Might Raise Transient Occupancy Tax by 2%

Share this article

California’s Humboldt County Board of Supervisors last week discussed a possible increase and expansion of the transient occupancy from 10% to 12%.

This new ordinance could be on the ballot in the coming months to allow residents to cast their votes.

During the March 1 meeting, county officials shared that the tax increase had been considered for months.

“A ballot measure that updates the tot tax or hotel tax is potentially viable with more than 50% indicating support. Based on the polling, staff on your board consider placing and update of the tot tax to a new rate of 12% and including RV parks and campgrounds,” a county official said.

Tax rates usually affect hotels guests. However, if supervisors and voters agree, the tax might also apply to those staying at private campgrounds and RV parks.

Some residents voiced opposition against the ordinance, saying the county is greedy and wants money from residents who are suffering from the rising cost of living. There were also residents who said this is an excellent method to increase the amount of money flowing into the county.
