USA: Internet travel agents sue New York City over hotel room occupancy tax

A group of major Internet travel firms as well as the American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA) and the U.S. Tour Operators Association (USTOA) filed a law suit against New York City to stop the extension of a hotel tax on their clients. They allege that the law extending the city’s hotel room occupancy tax to “third-party travel intermediaries” is “unconstitutional and illegal” as the city “has no inherent power to tax.”Source:, find article here>>.
