We decided to have dinner at Subway Sandwich shop tonight, we were on the road, my husband was doing some work for a friend. Standing in line waiting to order, the lady in front of me said she had huckleberry pie today. I smiled and said I Love pie, in fact I was just thinking about pie a couple of hours earlier. She went to pay for her sandwich and said “What no sales tax!” and I did a little dance, which I seem to do once in a blue moon, I think it’s called the Happy dance, and said it’s true, no sales tax isn’t Montana Great! I remember when I first moved up here how shocked I was when I heard that there was no sales tax. There is a Resort tax in some resort towns 3% or less. There is also a 7% bed tax for Motels, Hotels, and Vacation Rentals.
So here’s my question. What are a couple of things that you might hear in your area that tells you that Tourist Season is here, that is if you are in an area that receives tourists.
