On November 3rd, 2015, McCall residents voted to increase sales tax on purchases by 1% in an effort to generate revenue for the repair and rebuilding of roads in our community. The increase will not affect food groceries or motor vehicle sales but will apply to both visitors and locals.
In addition to the Tourism 3% L.O.T. currently in place on hotel and motel room occupancy, this local Option Tax extends and additional 3% tax on short term rentals.
Revenue created from this local option tax is estimated at more than $800,000 per year and is a substantial increase to improving McCall roadways. Maintaining our streets is an ongoing responsibility. The Streets Local Option Tax will be collected for the next ten years and put to use in our city beyond the year 2022.
