Of course it can be argued that this is a money play. This is a way in which the County can further tax its residents. So not only do its residents pay income and real estate taxes but now must pay yet a third tax, a "rental" tax. The County now finds itself in the ridiculous position of taxing rents of 29 days but not of 30 days under the premiss that 29-day rentals constitute a "business" and 30-day rentals magically do not. If the County wants to further tax its residents then it should tax all rentals regardless of duration.
