State lawmakers are right now considering allowing ANY city or town in Massachusetts to impose a new sales tax on ALL real estate of up to 2%. This will drive up costs, hurt the economy and destabilize the marketplace.

GBREB NEWS
The City of Boston has agreed to a settlement agreement with Airbnb, establishing Airbnb's responsibilities under the City of Boston's short-term rental ordinance.   

Under the terms of the agreement, Boston will continue to require owners to register their units and continue the City's regulations about which units are eligible to be used as short-term rentals. On September 1, 2019, Airbnb's website will add a function to allow hosts to enter and display their required City-formatted registration number. By December 1, 2019, all listings will be required to display a City-formatted registration number, or the listings will be removed. Airbnb will inform users of the City's short-term rental standards, and work with users to ensure their listings are registered with the City of Boston.

In addition, Airbnb will also share key data with the City of Boston, including the listing's unique ID/URL, submitted registration number, unique host ID, listing information, and listing zip code.

Under the agreement, the City of Boston will have the power to notify Airbnb of any listing the City believes is ineligible under Boston's short-term rental ordinance. Unless the host complies with Boston's short-term rental registration process in thirty days, Airbnb will remove the listing from its platform.  

For additional information regarding the short-term rental law and the details of the settlement agreement please visit the City of Boston Inspectional Services website.
