Tourism marketing bills aimed at B and B's

Legislation would require residences used for Airbnb and vacation rental by owner programs in all Wisconsin counties, including Door and Kewaunee, to fund tourism marketing efforts. Currently, those operations are not required to pay room taxes like motels or hotels. The Lodging Place Marketing bills are currently before the assembly and state senate.  Josh Van Lieshout, Chair of the Door County Tourism Zone Commission, says Door County has a pretty good participation rate with Airbnb and Vrbo.  He believes such fairness is needed statewide.


The Lodging Place Marketing bills have been introduced in Madison without being enacted.  Van Lieshout says he's confident the legislation will become law during this term.
