Lodging Tax Increase?

I saw this on a Mexico booking site.

Anybody here know if it is true?

"Make a reservation NOW and save 5%!!!

The Mexican government recently passed a law which will increase the sales and lodging fees by 5% beginning Jan. 1, 2014. Make your reservation by Dec. 31 to avoid the 5% increase! NOTE: The 5% increase is for NEW reservations and does not affect reservations already in place."

Yes it's true! Sales tax is going from 11% to 16% and sales+hotel tax from $14% to 19%! It's going to be a big change!

Now, this is for the State of Quintana Roo, which has always been 5% less than the rest of the country, so what they're doing it taking it up to the same tax rates as the rest of Mexico.

Doesn't make it any more palatable ;).

That was fast. Gracias, Scott!


Note: The quote was from a Cozumel condo booking site. LG does not offer condo rental on Coz.

Looks like the 17th Bob. Our favorite condo is booked the week before unfortunately. I always try to restrain Tomas from booking to see what will happen life wise, but with this 5% thing he is too rabid to restrain![:D]
