Jacksonville Seeks Occupancy Tax

One of Eastern Carolina's biggest cities wants to generate revenue by taxing people when they rent hotel rooms or other lodging.

A bill is on the N.C. House calendar Tuesday to create a 3% occupancy tax in Jacksonville. The bill says the city will turn the money from the tax over to the Jacksonville Tourism Development Authority. Two-thirds would go to promoting travel and tourism in Jacksonville. The other third would go to tourism-related expenditures.
