Visitors who live in Virginia are entitled to a tax rebate that can cost between $30 and $100 per person per day if they’re booked into a hotel, resort or cruise.
Virginia tourism officials say they’re considering extending that rebate, which is currently only available to those booked into hotels, to all Virginians.
That means hotel, cruise and vacation rentals would no longer have to charge a surcharge, which Virginians currently pay.
Virginia’s tourism department is planning to offer that rebate to all hotels and resorts booked in Virginia.
The Tourism Office of Virginia says it has the authority to expand that rebate by 10 percent.
If Virginia does that, it would likely be a bigger increase than the $30-per-person-per
