[ Text of section effective as provided by 2018, 337, Secs. 14 and 15A as added by 2019, 5, Sec. 37. See 2019, 5, Sec. 46.]

Section 3C. In addition to the excise imposed under section 3 and any excise imposed under section 3A, an excise shall be imposed on the transfer of occupancy of a room in a bed and breakfast establishment, hotel, lodging house, short-term rental or motel located within a municipality that is a member of the Cape Cod and Islands Water Protection Fund established under section 19 of chapter 29C at a rate of 2.75 per cent of the total amount of rent for each such occupancy; provided, however, that all revenues received from the excise under this section shall be credited to the Cape Cod and Islands Water Protection Fund. An excise shall not be imposed if the total amount of rent is less than $15 per day or its equivalent. An operator shall pay the excise due to the Cape Cod and Islands Water Protection Fund to the commissioner at the same time and in the same manner as the excise due to the commonwealth.
