King City council members are proposing a tax on guests who stay more than 30 days at local hotels and motels. Currently any guest who stays at a hotel pays a 10 percent Transient Occupancy Tax upfront and after 30 days guests do not pay it. The new tax being discussed Tuesday night would change that. The first part would limit stays to 30 days, after which guests would need to check in again and pay the T.O.T. Hotel owners fear the tax will deter long-term guests, such as farm workers, losing valuable customers.
