Providence, RI – April 3, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — The Office of Revenue Analysis released its report on the state 5% hotel tax. The report looks at the collection and disbursement of the state’s 5% hotel tax which is levied on the rental of lodging for less than 30 consecutive days at the state’s hotels, motels and bed and breakfasts.
