Room TAX for boaters?

Thought we should spread the word of this before it gets out of hand and affects ALL OF US!

We live in Sturgeon Bay, WI (for a few more months, then onboard our ship) which is a draw for tourists and boaters in the summer. THIS IS WHAT WAS IN THE MORINING NEWS!

Members of the Door County Tourism Zone Commission discussed the possibility of a tax on transient boat slips at their meeting Jan. 15.

The primary concern facing the commission is the legality of a tax on transient slips.

Re: Room TAX for boaters?

I have been looking for Liveaboard Marinas in Florida, Texas, Washington, and Hawaii. A marina in Washington told me they tax your slip. Florida and Texas did not mention anything about taxes for the most part. I do remember seeing some places charge property taxes on a dock. I think they may have been in Florida, but they may have been the slips you own, not rent.
