    Re: Hawaii Trying to Kill VRBO

     

    @Jive Well if the cleaning fee has been added to the rents then it is getting

    GET & TAT. If you separate it then you say it is getting TAT.  I think you mean

    GET & TAT because when I have my carpets cleaned or other work done they charge

    me GET on their labor.  We do not tax labor in CA.

     

    @ajh  Per your comment "Regarding GET and TAT taxes on cleaning fees. If you

    seperate out your cleaning fees on the bill you give your guest they do not have

    to pay TAT on the cleaning fees. Same goes with a parking fee or resort fee. But

    if you lump it all together they must pay TAT on all."  This is not what I have

    been told throughout this whole ordeal which goes back to my last point which is

    that the govt doesn't know what the tax laws are so how could they expect us to

    know what they are!!!

    Re: Hawaii Trying to Kill VRBO

    What the supervisor told me is that even if the cleaning fee is separately listed, it is still considered part of the rent and TAT and GET must be paid.  On top of that, your cleaner has to pay GET on what s/he receives!  Double taxation!

    Re: Hawaii Trying to Kill VRBO

    In 2007 the Hi DoTax testified there was not a substantial problem.  No one has presented any data to suggest the has changed.  Just opinions of those with vested interests.

     

    Can you imagine a business that makes major decisions that affect many people based on unsubstantiated opinions.  The government would create regulations to prevent that.

     

    We need government regulations to prevent needless and harmful regulations

    Re: Hawaii Trying to Kill VRBO

    The legislators involved in HB1706, HB1707, HB2078 and SB2089 bills are blowing Aloha smoke in your face.

     

    They pretend that these bills are all about collecting taxes. In fact they are jobs bills for local property services who have fared badly in the current recession and are a thank you/payback to the Unions and others who have helped legislators and they hope will continue to help them in the upcoming elections. The smoke screen is the tax issue. The real agenda is electoral support (financial and votes).

     

    Here is how it works.

     

    Question 1: What is the main Union representing property mangers, hotel workers, doormen, porters and property maintenance workers in Hawaii?

    Answer 1. It is the SEIU 32BJ. It is the largest property service workers union in the US. It is affiliated with the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) that has over 2 million members. Many individual SEIU locals remain affiliated to regional AFL-CIO bodies through "solidarity charters”. In 1995, SEIU President John Sweeney was elected president of the AFL-CIO.

    SEIU is focused on organizing workers in three sectors: health care (over half of members work in the health care field), including hospital, home care and nursing home workers; public services (local and state government employees); and property services (including property managers, janitors, security officers and food service workers).

    For more information on the SEIU see:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Service_Employees_International_Union

    For more information on the SEIU 32BJ see:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SEIU_32BJ

    Question 2: Who contributed the most money to electing a Democrat to the White House in 2008?

    Answer 2: The SEIU. It spent $28 million supporting President Obama in the 2008 presidential election, making it the "organization that spent the most to help Barack Obama get elected president." The SEIU contributes 95% of its donations to Democrats. They also help in turning out the vote at the time of elections. Local and state government employees (like property managers and property service workers) are SEIU union members.  As legislative staff members they are often charged with crafting the wording on bills and have the ears of legislators.

    Question 3: What is the link between the wording in these bills catering to the interests of property managers at the expense of private owners?

    Answer 3: Democrat legislators seeking re-election this year need to be seen to push legislation that is in the interest of the local property managers and those involved in local property services and those involved with the unions rather than those involved in the private sector (private owners). How better to do this than to persistently revive and re-insert into new bills language that does this and that was previously deleted from earlier bills? The hope is that the SEIU and the group in the Hawaii Realtors Association who support this language will help them in the upcoming election. However another group in the Hawaii Realtors Association who sell property are not in favor of this language, since they know it will hurt their business, slow down property sales and decrease the asset value of property. The hotel industry in Hawaii will not be pleased about the activity by these legislators who are emboldening the very unions who are trying to unionize their workers (like SEIU 32BJ).  This will drive up the costs and decrease the profits for the hotel industry in Hawaii.

    Question 4: Who has voted AYE most frequently in favor of these bills (HB1706, HB1707, HB2078 and SB2089) over the past several weeks. Below is a table that tracks the votes so far.

    Answer 4:

    Yamashita






    Riviere






    Ward

    From this table, the off-island owners, the realtors involved in selling property and the local hotel industry and local businesses can see who is most actively operating against their interests.

    Question 5: Who are the main financial contributors to the legislators repeatedly pushing this legislation in the past few months?

    Answer 5: Those interested in examining the contributions to these legislators from the property services, the health care sector, public services and unions going to these legislators can find such information as follows.  The public financial disclosure filings posted on the Hawaii State Ethics Commission website for the legislators and the campaign contributions to the legislators most frequently voting AYE for this legislation can be found at:

    http://hawaii.gov/ethics/findisc/legs 

    For additional independent information on contributions sources of funding for Hawaii State Legislators see:

    http://www.followthemoney.org/

    http://www.followthemoney.org/database/advancedsearch.phtml

    http://www.opensecrets.org/resources/ftm/

    Some of the legislators involved in this voting have not filed their 2012 public financial disclosures on the Hawaii State Ethics Commission website. Several have been getting contributions from the health care sector, public services, property services and unions.

    Hawaii State Governor Neil Abercrombie received $38,250 from the SEIU.

    Any ethics violations can be reported for further investigation to:

    Hawaii State Ethics Commission:

    Maria Sullivan, Chairperson

    Les Kondo, Executive Director

    Website http://hawaii.gov/ethics

    Office Location: 1001 Bishop Street Honolulu, HI 96813

    Mailing Address: P.O. Box 616 Honolulu, HI 96809

    Phone: (808) 587-0460 Fax: (808) 587-0470


    Go to Civil Beat http://www.civilbeat.com/topics/hawaii-state-ethics-commission/

    The Ethics Commission opposed the most controversial ethics bill considered in the 2011 legislative session. Senate Bill 671 attempted to water down Hawaii's gift law, including allowing legislators to accept "charitable gifts" from labor unions and business groups.

    Hawaii Senator Galuteria proposed gutting rules governing gifts to lawmakers. The move by Democratic Sen. Brickwood Galuteria comes after the Hawaii State Ethics Commission told Senate President Shan Tsutsui that lawmakers could not accept gifts of $200-per-person tickets to a Feb. 24 Hawaii Institute for Public Affairs (HIPA) fundraiser. The state's rules on gifts have not been changed since they were created in 1967. But on Tuesday at 9 a.m., the Judiciary and Labor Committee will hold the first public hearing for SB 671. Galuteria has proposed amending the bill in a way that would radically alter the intent of its two initial sponsors, Sens. Les Ihara and Sam Slom, who wanted to tighten ethics rules. Galuteria could not be reached for comment.

    Galuteria voted AYE 3 times in support of the bills hostile to off-island owners (see table above).

     

    Question 6. I heard these bills have wording that is in violation of NAFTA, the Commerce Clause and the Equal Protection Clause of the US Constitution. Where can I find information about this?

    Answer 6.

    For a clear overview on the Commerce Clause of the US Constitution see:

    http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Commerce+Clause

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commerce_Clause

    For a clear overview on the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment of the US Constitution see:

    http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Equal+Protection+Clause

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equal_Protection

    For a clear overview on NAFTA see:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NAFTA

    Pursuant to these Clauses, the US Congress had enacted major pieces of legislation that have extended protection against discrimination beyond that contained in the Constitution. For example, the CR Act of 1871 (42. U.S.C.A. 1983 et seq.) Section 1983 of the Act created a federal remedy for individuals whose constitutional rights had been violated by state officials. Such relief will be granted if “state action” can be demonstrated.

    Further information can be found on Google, Bing and Askme.com.

    Question 7: What do we do now?

    Answer 7: If the final bills passed in the next 2 weeks are harmful to the interests of off-island owners, do the following:

    1. File an injunction to block the bills being enacted until after they are adjudicated in court
    2. Pursue action in Federal Courts on the grounds of the unconstitutional violations
    3. Pursue monetary damages against the state of Hawaii based on the Federal remedies mentioned above
    4. Investigate the dealings of the legislators as outlined above and report any violations to the state, the federal agencies and the media
    5. Launch an all out public relations media campaign about these issues
    6. Don’t inhale any more of their Aloha smoke. The real agenda here is not to improve tax collections. That smoke is to distract you from the real agenda.

    Great insight and analysis,  As DeepThroat said - "Follow the money"

     

    You have provided additional paths of defense and attack.

     

    It would be nice if they would come to their senses, but they do not seem so

    inclined, so we need to prepare ourselves for a long battle ahead.

    and are determined to prevail.  The information you have provided is terrific.

    Re: Hawaii Trying to Kill VRBO
    INSTRUCTIONS FOR EVERYONE.  Please prepare opposing letters by tomorrow to be ready to send to the Hawaii legislatures by Sunday 6pm.  SB2078 in its current form will be voted on Tuesday 4/10.  This is our last free opportunity to oppose this bill.
    Your letters should be short and polite. You should oppose the 3 items as follows:  the 1:1 owner:contact requirement, the posting of local contact's personal info in your ads, and no PMs. Please write this anyway you want but if you disagree and write something different than this, our message will not be strong.

     

    Please contact your on island contact via phone and advise them how SB2078 will affect their lives regarding:

     

    237D(a)(3) Able to respond to any issues or concerns relating to the transient accommodation, including in the case of an emergency or natural disaster; provided that the designated agent shall not include any individual who is designated as an agent for more than a single owner;

    This means that your on island contact can only work for you and nobody else.  And if your island contact cannot function in that manner, then we will be forced to hire a licensed agent.

     

    237D(f) If the owner resides without the State or on another island from where the transient accommodation is located, any advertisement for the owner's transient accommodation shall also include the name and phone number of a designated agent for that transient accommodation.

    This means that your on island contact name and phone number will be on your advertisement and their information will no longer be private and they could get unwanted phones calls from people viewing your ad at any time

    We will post instructions on how to submit your letter tomorrow.  Please join us in the 'BIG WAVE'.

    I am having difficulty understanding why the union would want to push so ******* this. 

    Are property managers members of this union?  Since their membership is large, Don't they have issues that are bigger and more important?

    Re: Hawaii Trying to Kill VRBO

    See the Union Home Page for SEIU 32BJ (http://www.seiu32bj.org/au/index.asp) where the Mission Statement is clearly spelled out as follows:

    “Our Mission 

    As part of SEIU Justice for Janitors, Stand for Security and Multi Service Workers campaigns, 32BJ helps property service workers lift themselves out of poverty and into the middle class by wining livable wages and meaningful benefits, including healthcare, paid sick days and job protection.”

     

    Their website actually spells winning as 'wining" (as copied above).  To "lift themselves out of poverty" and get better "job protection", they need to learn how to spell (and read).  This is what we are up against.

    Re: Hawaii Trying to Kill VRBO

    The requirement that off-island owners must employ an on-island agent or contact, who in turn is restricted from serving more than one owner, even if the owner retains management responsibilities, is a “restraint of trade” violation. This “1:1 Rule” makes it void and unenforceable.

     

    For those interested in a clear overview of Restraint of Trade see the following links:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Restraint_of_trade

    http://definitions.uslegal.com/r/restraint-of-trade/

    http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Restraint+of+Trade

    http://wiki.ask.com/Restraint_of_trade?oo=13755

     

    It is also a violation of antitrust law/competition law.

    For those interested in a clear overview of Restraint of Trade see the following link:

    http://wiki.ask.com/Competition_law?qsrc=3044&oo=13755

     

    Sherman Act 1890.

    Section 2. Monopolizing trade a felony; penalty

    “Every person who shall monopolize, or attempt to monopolize, or combine or conspire with any other person or persons, to monopolize any part of the trade or commerce among the several States, or with foreign nations, shall be deemed guilty of a felony, and, on conviction thereof, shall be punished by fine not exceeding $10,000,000 if a corporation, or, if any other person, $350,000, or by imprisonment not exceeding three years, or by both said punishments, in the discretion of the court.”

     

    Section 4. Jurisdiction of courts; duty of United States attorneys; procedure

    “The several district courts of the United States are invested with jurisdiction to prevent and restrain violations of sections 1 to 7 of this title; and it shall be the duty of the several United States attorneys, in their respective districts, under the direction of the Attorney General, to institute proceedings in equity to prevent and restrain such violations. Such proceedings may be by way of petition setting forth the case and praying that such violation shall be enjoined or otherwise prohibited. When the parties complained of shall have been duly notified of such petition the court shall proceed, as soon as may be, to the hearing and determination of the case; and pending such petition and before final decree, the court may at any time make such temporary restraining order or prohibition as shall be deemed just in the premises.”

     

    Any legislators who conspire with any business, any union, any lobbyists, any contributors or any donors to restrain trade in this way can be subject to Section 2 of the Sherman Act of 1890, which is vigorously enforced.

     

    Such violations should be reported to the Federal Trade Commission.

     

    In the meantime, petition the courts to prohibit this “1:1 Rule” requirement and seek a temporary restraining order from it’s imminent implementation.

     

    Any person knowing of such a conspiracy and reporting it, may be entitled under the Federal Whistleblowers Act, to a substantial percentage of the fine(s) levied against any and all of the violators they report.

    Re: Hawaii Trying to Kill VRBO

    This is the start of my email tonight:

     

    RE: opposition to HB2078 HD2 SD2

     

    Dear Representative:

     

    Under HRS 467-2 owners are excepted from requiring a property manager or caretaker, and allowed to manage their property as a TVR.  Any change to that right, requiring out-of-state owners to hire a licensed realtor, property manager, or exclusive caretaker, will bankrupt many owners unnecessarily.


    Under HRS Section 521-43(f), out-of-state owners are currently required to provide guests with an on-island emergency contact… a good requirement no business could survive without.


    HB2078 HD2 SD2 effectively changes the on-island contact to fall under the requirements of HRS 467, thus eliminating the out-of-state owners right to act as their own agent. Since there is no obvious need to have the emergency contact fall under real-estate licensing guidelines, other than to subvert interstate commerce law and NAFTA, any judge will quickly block execution of this law.

     

    Is that a good start?

    Re: Hawaii Trying to Kill VRBO

    If you look at the employment figures, the HI Leisure and Hospitality Employment figures were the hardest hit post 2008 (not to mention the strongest growing segment prior to that time).   During that same period, HI government payroll actually steadily increased, even in face of the 2008 crash.

     

    That the Hotel Unions would be lobbying strongly for favors from the legislature right now makes sense in light of this being the hardest hit of all employment sectors on the island. Recovery started in 2010.

    Re: Hawaii Trying to Kill VRBO

    Blackburied: Your letter cuts to the chase of the issue.   By effectively changing the on-island contact requirement under one HRS section to fall under another HRS requirement, the legislature is trying to eliminate our right to act as our own agents, subverting interstate commerce law and NAFTA.  This little dance on the part of the legislature was a complicated one. Everyone needs to read your letter carefully.  Many thanks!
