B&Bs vs. Rentals; Let’s Reverse Question

Cape Cod Times letter, April 15, 2015

Noting that the hotel room occupancy tax has been extended to bed-and-breakfasts and arguing that it should be extended to summer home rentals (“Falmouth seeks expansion of hotel room taxes,” April 10), Falmouth Selectman Sam Patterson says, “It seems to me to be an unfair situation that needs to be remedied.” How about taking the tax off the bed-and-breakfasts? Why does some people’s idea of fairness always involve increasing taxes?
