Theoretically out of state visitors should be paying sales tax, and property tax on their vacation homes. Donít you also have fuel tax for roads?
Some of them do, some of them don't, many of them have come here, bought up the rental market and turned it all into short term rentals, I mean, 2000 a month, or 2000 a week rent? I understand why, but that doesn't mean I like what it's doing to the town.
In Colorado, the state gas tax is 22 cents a gallon, but that falls far short of taking care of the cost to fix the roads and bridges. They DO pay property tax, but compared to most other states, it's VERY low, and mainly supports the schools and special districts, not the highways and secondary road maintenance costs.
