Whether you own a Marriott timeshare or are looking to purchase one in the future, it's important to have an accurate understanding of your annual Marriott Vacation Club dues. After all, when it comes to money, no one likes surprises. But before we dive into an explanation about the annual costs associated with your ownership, let us first clarify some terms for you.
When people talk about Marriott Vacation Club fees, they are typically referring to different the line items listed on their annual dues bill each year. These fees will vary; however, you will usually see an amount representing your annual maintenance fee. It is also common to see line items for expenses such as property taxes, admistrative costs and future reserve funds, which are listed separately in order to clarify how your Marriott Vacation Club annual dues are distributed.

As a Marriott timeshare week(s) owner, your annual dues are based upon the following two key factors:

Weeks owners of resorts located in California will receive a separate tax bill directly from the county.
