Online hotel brokers can proceed with tax challenge (access required)

A group of online hotel reservation companies can proceed with their suit against the North Carolina Department of Revenue and Durham County over a hotel occupancy tax the companies believe unfairly and unconstitutionally targeted their business. The case focuses on the state’s sales tax on the rental of hotel rooms, and Durham County’s “room occupancy tax” on hotel rooms within the county. The plaintiffs – Orbitz, Travelocity, Hotwire, and Travelscape – are considered “facilitators” under both of the laws in question.
