The New Short-term Rental Law –What it Means for Your Community and How to Prepare for it
Thursday, February 28, 2019, Program 3:30 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Hogan Center, Holy Cross College, Worcester
This program will cover what cities and towns need to know about the new short-term rental law (Chapter 337 of the Acts of 2018, “An Act Regulating and Insuring Short-Term Rentals”). The new law regulates the operation of short-term rentals of property and extends the state and local room occupancy excise to those rentals. The program will explain the key features of the law and its implementation. Topics to be covered include the taxes and fees municipalities may impose, local regulation of the short-term rental industry, what communities need to do now to benefit from this law and pending industry challenges to regulations adopted by other jurisdictions that are similar to those required or permitted under the new law. This is an ideal program to bring others from your communities to, including administrators, elected officials, finance personnel and code enforcement staff.
The program is $50.00 for MMLA members current on their dues and local officials. The fee includes the seminar, electronic materials and a full buffet dinner. There is a $10.00 surcharge for non-dues-current MMLA members.
