Pennsylvania ~ Sales and Use Tax: Appeal Denied in Online Travel Company Case

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has denied a petition for allowance of appeal in a case in which the Commonwealth Court held that an online travel company (OTC) was not liable for Philadelphia hotel tax on the difference between the room rates it contracted with hotels and the rates, including fees, it charged its customers for rooms because the OTC was not an “operator” under the ordinance ( TAXDAY, 2012/02/03, S.26 ).
