New Statewide Property Tax and 13% Private Home Rental Tax Proposed to Start July 1, 2015

by Elaine Infantolino 27. March 2015 07:37

Article 11 of the budget that was recently proposed by Governor Raimondo would create a new statewide property tax. If the Rhode Island General Assembly votes to approve this tax, it would apply, for now, to all non-owner occupied homes, smaller multi-units, mobile homes, condominiums, and vacant land valued at $1 million or more. But the tax can be changed at anytime to apply to owner-occupied homes of any value, including yours. The budget also proposes a 13% private home rental tax on short-term rentals of 30 days or less. The proposal would treat homes, cottages, condos and any properties like hotels by requiring the owners to collect hotel and sales tax on each rental. There’s still time to stop both of these taxes from going into effect.

Michael Dym

I have been fortunate to have a long and prosperous career in real estate. Before falling in love with magical Jamestown, I practiced real estate law in Manhattan. I have helped purchasers and sellers close thousands of homes. My professional career has been dedicated to real estate with one notable exception as an art auctioneer and appraiser, fine art being my other passion.

I have a BA from Bucknell University and a JD from New York Law.  I have served on the adjunct faculty of NYU’s Real Estate Institute, Pratt Institute and the New York Real Estate Institute, where I lectured and taught real estate licensing courses, business law and real estate broker continuing education.

When I'm not doing real estate, Contemporary art and artist book collecting are some of my longtime passions.  I support small-scale local farming and there’s nothing more enjoyable for me than being in and among the enchanting seascapes of Jamestown.
