TBID Santa Barbara?
Urgent! All Santa Barbara area Lodging and VRBO Operators!
An Early Renewal and Increase to our TBID Tax is being pushed through and as proposed will take effect July 1, 2022. Our properties already have extensive bookings through yearend that have the current TBID rate charged to them
The NEW RATE is 2% of your Lodging Revenues with a planned 3% rate during the 10 Year Term. The existing rate is Tier Based ranging from $1.10 per room night to $7.70 per room night with VRBOs paying $4 per night. This will be a HUGE INCREASE for ALL hotel and VRBO operators!
Our TBID Tax JUST INCREASED 10% Jan 1, 2022 and our current TBID does not end until Dec 2024. We would like to see the results of this increase before we agree to another bigger increase, will our bookings increase?
If you feel this Tax has grown out of control and you would like to delay any renewal at this time please sign this petition. The TBID requires only a simple majority of 50% to be renewed or cancelled. There has been no opportunity for opposition in the past. Now is your chance to make a change!
