    Hinchey Introduces Bill to Track and Tax Vacation Rentals in New York

    A new bill aims to create state-level regulation of short-term rentals in New York. The Short-Term Rental Registry Act, introduced Friday by state Sen. Michelle Hinchey (D-Saugerties), is intended to help municipalities track, regulate, and collect taxes on rentals. The measure defines a rental as a unit "offered for tourist or transient use" for less than 30 consecutive days. Its primary outcome would be to create a statewide registry, managed by the Department of State, in which property owners would be required to register their units every two years.
