Timeshare Taxes – Disturbing Trend – Extra Surcharges And Taxes By Taxing Authorities ….Author of Timesharefun.com
We exchanged into the Cancun Resort And Spa a couple of years back and we loved the resort.The amenities were great.
It was when we were checking out that we were informed about extra charges that we did not know about and were not informed about when we checked in.
This is becoming a disturbing trend in timeshare resorts in larger metro areas of the country. County taxing officials, are being pressured by larger hotel chains to equalize the per night taxes they are being required to collect verses only the exchange inper week rates that we are used to.
So, the pressures of the big hotel and motel chains have convinced the local taxing authorities that “timeshare resorts” are not fair in only charging “a exchange fee” whereas hotels and motels are required to collect nightly taxes.
So, here we go. Make sure when you exchange into another timeshare resort that you check out if there are any extra taxes or surcharges. Here are some examples in some areas of the country.
