Hawaii Teachers Union Targets Airbnb for Tax Revenue

Having failed last year to raise the state’s general excise tax, the Hawaii State Teachers Association plans to raise the property tax instead.

The proposal would place a surcharge on residential investment properties and a $3-$5 per day surcharge on stays in hotel rooms, timeshares and Airbnb.

HSTA is a tax-exempt organization.

Here is the video report from Hawaii News Now.
