Officials on Maui are moving quickly to implement a new tax on tourists
KAHULUI, Hawaii — Officials on Maui are moving quickly to implement a new tax on tourists.
The new law allows Hawaii’s counties to collect a 3% tax from visitors staying at hotels and other short-term rentals.
Before the new law, the state collected a 10% hotel tax and distributed a share to each county. Now, the counties can levy their own surcharge to the tax and keep the money for local needs.
