MA House Passes Initial Approval of Lodging Tax and Regulation Bill

After many quiet months, the Mass. House of Representatives initially approved a bill yesterday that would tax and regulate short-term rentals in the Commonwealth.

Although the bill is expected to pass full House approval as soon as tomorrow, March 21, the bill would also require approval in the Senate, which has its own version of an “Airbnb” bill, as well as from Governor Charlie Baker.
