Small businesses missing perks

Editor, OBSERVER:

Our Airbnb house on Cedar Beach pays an occupancy tax, bed tax, city tax, school tax, state taxes and a county tax. Why does a hotel, which is now the Clarion Hotel Marina & Conference Center, not have to pay these taxes also?

The Clarion hasn’t paid school or county taxes for the last 25 years? How is that helping small business?

AL KERN,
