Roane County Government contracted with Tax Management Associates Inc. to do an audit of local campgrounds and hotels/motels.
The contract amount was $13,000, but the five companies that were chosen for the hotel/motel tax audit owed only a combined $622.
“It was a good idea,” County Executive Ron Woody said about doing the audit. “We will always periodically check. You want to make sure everybody is doing what’s right, and they were.”
