Maui County Tax Resource Center
Welcome to the Tax Resource Center. Here you will find information about governmental attempts to increase taxes on timeshare owners in Hawaii.
On March 25, 2012, the Mayor of Maui released his initial budget for the 2013 fiscal year which included his proposed tax rates for all property tax classifications. For the second year in a row, the Mayor has placed the largest tax increase on the timeshare industry, proposing a $1.15 increase to the current rate of $15.00. This 7% increase, on top of the 8% increase last year, would mean that timeshare owners would have seen a 15% increase in their property tax rate over the past two years. These increases come without any rational justification from the Maui County Council other than they want the industry to pay at least the same amount of taxes as last year.
ARDA-ROC and ARDA strongly oppose any increase to property taxes in Maui. ARDA-ROC encourages each and every owner of timeshare on Maui to call or to write the Mayor, as well as the County Council members, to voice your opposition to this tax increase. Please remember that this is the Mayor's budget proposal, so you will be asking each Council member to reject that proposal and keep the property tax rate for timeshare at $15.00. Numerous timeshare companies, their employees, interested community members, as well as ARDA and ARDA-ROC will be in attendance at the community budget hearing that will take place at 6:00 pm on April 11 at the Lahaina Civic Center, as well as the Maui County Council Budget Hearing at 9:00 am on April 20 at the county council building. We will have more information for you as to how you or your association can participate in each meeting.
