COLUMBUS, Ga. (WXTX) - Columbus gets a notch in it's case against Expedia.com.
The city says the online travel agency owes tens of millions of dollars in unpaid hotel taxes.
Cities and counties all over Georgia are making the same claim.
Today, Columbus set the precedent for other cases of it's kind. A permanent junction was granted for the city of Columbus-- meaning the city will now receive taxes that it previously was not receiving. We're told this is the first time a city has gone this far in a case against Expedia.com.
