Posted on 05 August 2010

Travelers pay up to $101 in sales, hotel, rental car and other extra taxes aimed at them on an average three-day domestic trip, according to a study out today from the National Business Travel Association. The study says travelers pay not only local sales taxes on goods and services when they go to a U.S. city, but up to 144% more each day they rent a car, stay at a hotel and dine. The study looked at the 50 U.S. cities with the most air passengers. It found that the typical business traveler pays $101.27 in taxes on average for hotel, rental car and meals during a three-day, two-night stay in Chicago-more than in any other city. Travelers pay more than $85 in similar taxes duing the same length of stay in Seattle, Minneapolis, New York and Boston. A traveler pays the least amount of taxes-$52.49-in Portland, Ore.
