Wayzata 1% Food and Beverage Tax Hearing
Laura Garcia | The Hotel Landing
On Wednesday, the House Property Tax Division heard HF1535, which would allow the City of Wayzata the authority to establish a 1% food and beverage tax on all restaurants and places of refreshment within the city. Hospitality Minnesota member, Laura Garcia, General Manager of The Hotel Landing, testified to raise concerns about the bill. There was committee discussion on the need for the tax; but ultimately the bill was laid over for potential inclusion in the omnibus bill. As a reminder, the Senate Taxes Committee has already heard the bill and laid the bill over for potential inclusion in the omnibus bill. This means that this proposed tax is “on the list” of the potential bills to be included in the final tax bill. Final negotiations on that bill will occur over the weeks to come.
