Recently, the online travel booking site Expedia was ordered by a Muscogee County judge to remit taxes on the full room rate it charges to customers. Expedia, and other travel sites, buy blocks of rooms at wholesale rates, and pay the 7% Georgia tax on the room at the wholesale rate. The lawsuit against Expedia claims that the company charged its customers the 7% rate on the regular room rate, and pocketed the difference, resulting in millions of dollars in lost tax revenue. There are a number of cases against these online travel sites, all alleging basically the same claims. The case against Expedia in Muscogee County was the first to be decided. The ruling is expected to be appealed by Expedia.
