New Hampshire May Repeal 9% Campground Tax
New Hampshire’s House is considering repealing a 9% tax on campsites that took effect last July, according to WBZ-TV, Boston.
The House votes today (March 3) whether to eliminate the tax that was enacted to help pay for state spending.
Campgrounds were added to the state’s tax on hotel rooms and restaurant meals. The tax, which went into effect July 1, applies to RV and tent sites.
Supporters argue basic tent sites are assessed very little tax. But opponents say the tax will drive away campers, which could put campground owners out of business.
