Council requests repeal of tour tax

November 9, 2011

NARRAGANSETT—The town council voted unanimously on Monday evening to request a repeal of the state tax on tour operations. The Rhode Island General Assembly passed the law for the upcoming 2012 fiscal year budget, and applies a sales tax upon local businesses who operate tour vehicles in the state.

“I co-sponsored this request with Susan Cicilline-Buonanno,” said Councilman Christopher Wilkens. “It is a state tax on things like tour boats and trolleys, working to our disadvantage.”
