Park Model Trailers Could Be Hit By Property Tax

The owners of those big trailers that spend more than 30 days in one trailer park might have to start paying property tax in the province. 

That message was delivered to campground owners by Sue Stultz, the minister responsible for Service New Brunswick. 

Howard Heans runs the campground at Harding's Point and he tells CHSJ News this would go into effect next year. He adds what's around the trailer will be taxed as well which could be decks and sheds. Heans warns this could adversely affect the sale of trailers. 

The campground owners are already angry over a proposed 3 per cent levy on campers that would be used to market tourism in the province.
