Tourist tax and limits
The Majorca Hoteliers Federation announced that it would be taking the tourist tax to court. It didn't specify the justifications for this, other than to say that there had all along been an intention to challenge the tax. Tourism minister Biel Barceló first said he couldn't understand why the federation was doing this and then said that he wasn't surprised. Whether the legal challenge goes anywhere remains to be seen, as the Balearic High Court has to decide if the federation has a case. The government, though, said that it would be talking with the federation in order to try and prevent the matter going further.
