  1. For all Arizona cities you did not include a note that the temporary 1% sales tax increase expired May 2013. A note was only included next to the state ranking for Arizona. All rates listed for Arizona cities are now 1 pt lower. Phoenix is now 12.27% instead of the 13.27% listed.

    Excellent report. It would be very interesting to measure the impact of property/resort fees in addition to the government taxes.

    I book travel for our Grant Audit Team. Recently found that I need a list of Hotel Room Occupancy Tax rates. I'm hoping this may help in more accurately approximating the room rates for our team.
