Dear KPTMC Members,

As voted on at the January 2nd, 2007 Borough Assembly meeting, the “per person per day” ordinance will go into effect on April 1st, 2007. This ordinance will change the way businesses who sell recreational packages and services (such as guided fishing and sightseeing) are required to charge their customers tax. They will now be required to charge each person participating each day the activity takes place. For example: A group of four who book a fishing package for 3 days at $250 per person, per day for a total package cost of $3000 currently pays $10 in borough tax, 2% of the $500 tax cap. The same tax calculated under the new ordinance would be $60, 2% of $250 for each person, each day. Please see a copy of the Borough notice below. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Kenai Peninsula Borough Tax Division at 714-2175 ext. 2175 or 1-800-478-4441. Or call us here at the office at 262-5992.

If there's any money left at the end of the year, can I give it to the borough for all they do for me?
(thanks, Gary)
