As we have mentioned in past Travel Advisor Dailys, we facing state tax fights in multiple states this spring, and can now add Nebraska and Washington to the list. The Nebraska bill would impose a six percent tax on "the gross income received for the services of travel agents and tour operators and for online travel services," while the Washington bill would increase the tax rate on agency commission income from 0.275 percent to as high as 2.5 percent. As in other states, we need our members' help to fight these wrong-headed tax increases. If you are based in Nebraska or Washington (or know anyone who is), please take two minutes out of your day to contact your legislator through our grassroots portals below.
