ENFORCE THE LAW FAIRLY,

RENTAL HOMES, CONDOS APARTMENTS/REALTORS MUST NOT BE

ALLOWED TO HIDE BEHIND THE TERM SEASONAL WHEN THEY ARE

RENTING FOR WEEKS AND DAYS AT A TIME.

HOMES, CONDOS REALTORS ARE COMPETING UNFAIRLY AND NOT

PAYING THEIR FAIR SHARE OF THE TAX,

THIS IS HURTING TAX PAYERS.

 AS WELL AS HOTEL/MOTEL, ROOMING AND OTHERS WHO ARE PAYING THE TAX

 

This site is dedicated to the repeal of the New Jersey Hotel Tax and  the support and  promotion of all of the

businesses at the New Jersey Shore.

Our Mission

    It is our hope that the collective voice of the New Jersey Shore Hospitality Association (NJSHA) will lead to the

repeal of this New Jersey tax or at the very least the equitable application to all, thereby supporting tourism at the

New Jersey Shore now and in the future.    

            New Jersey is currently the most expensive state in which to operate a business, 14% above the national average.

Tourist-centered services are no exception. The New Jersey Hotel tax has increased this cost to a point where visitors are

turning away from the New Jersey Shore and taking their vacations and their dollars elsewhere. New Jersey has lost $1

billion in tourism dollars in the past ten years, and this trend is rapidly escalating. The New Jersey Shore hotels, motels,

and Bed &Breakfasts are part of the fabric of summer vacation life. However, they are not the only accommodations used

by summer visitors. Many homes, apartments and condominiums additionally compete for the same market and have mistakenly

offer these units as tax exempt accommodations for stays of less than 90 days    

   

THE PRESENT TAX LAWS VIOLATES THE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS OF ALL SEASONAL

NEW JERSEY SHORE HOTEL/MOTEL LODGING PROPERTIES

   The present legislation has been applied selectively to New Jersey Shore Motels, Hotels/Lodging to their detriment and with

a benefit to realtors and owners of seasonal rental properties. Seasonal rentals have offered their accommodations to tourists

for stays of less than 90 days as tax exempt accommodations in direct competition with New Jersey Shore hotel/motel businesses,

This practice was the subject of a STATE of NEW JERSEY Compliance Initiative in 2005 which is presently being blocked by the

powerful New Jersey Real Estate Lobby.

    

EQUAL PROTECTION UNDER THE LAW

   The concept of equal protection under the law precludes the singling out of any one class of individual whether business or otherwise

from a larger common group for the application of a specific policy or law. The New Jersey Hotel Tax and New Jersey Sales and Use

Tax does harm to New Jersey Shore hotel and motel owners. It is for these reasons that all New Jersey Shore Motels, Hotels and B&B's

have the right to seek exclusion from these New Jersey Taxes.

IT IS OUR OPINION THAT THE IMPOSITION OF ANY TAX ON SMALL SEASONAL JERSEY SHORE

MOTELS & RENTALS SHOULD BE RESCINDED.

                                                            

    PLEASE JOIN US IN THE FORMATION OF (NJSHA), Collectively we will consider the filling of a class action suit to repeal or amend the

New Jersey Hotel Tax as it affects businesses at the New Jersey Shore and any other New Jersey Tax which is selectively applied to only

a segment of the businesses competing for the declining tourism business. If you are interested in helping establish or in any way supporting

the NJSHA initiative to repeal the New Jersey tax please contact us by e-mail and with subject line New Jersey Hotel Tax. (NJSHA) will serve

all of the Jersey Shore and will consist of a general board of directors each representing separate regions of the New Jersey Shore. We will

announce a general meeting of all interested parties to address the New Jersey Hotel Tax and the New Jersey Sales and Use Tax which exist

for seasonal rentals of any sort. Good luck and good weather to all of our New Jersey Shore Businesses.

    Please CONTACT YOU LEGISLATOR and join us by submitting your comments through our feedback page and additionally contacting other

New Jersey Shore Hotels, Motels, B&B's and your representatives in TRENTON For More Information on the New Jersey Hotel tax and the
