New Short-Term Rental Tax is Focus of Info Session at CapeSpace

April 23rd from 6 to 8 p.m. at CapeSpace in Hyannis

(Hyannis, MA) – At the end of 2018, the state passed legislation to tax short-term rentals that was signed into law by Governor Charlie Baker. With the summer season fast approaching, how will that new tax impact homeowners on Cape Cod?

On Tuesday, April 23, 6-8 pm at CapeSpace, Ryan Castle, CEO of the Cape & Islands Association of REALTORS, will answer that question, leading a discussion about the new rental tax, how it will affect short-term rental businesses, and ways homeowners and property management companies can adapt to the changing vacation rental market.

Anthony Collito, owner of Down the Cape Concierge, will offer options for keeping competitive advantage. This will include simple, inexpensive, and effective ways to create one-of-a-kind experiences for your vacation property.

Down the Cape Concierge provides hotel-style services for vacation property guests throughout Cape Cod, specializing in corporate travel, destination wedding groups, and family reunions.

The free event will include refreshments provided by Truro Vineyards and Snowy Owl Coffee as well as giveaways from Down the Cape Concierge service partners. To register visit
