Chuck Carey sent me some information he received from the Department of Revenue. The data tells an interesting story. Rooms tax in Dennis has been dropping. It has dropped in years when tax collections on all of Cape Cod climbed. It has dropped in years when tax collections in Yarmouth have climbed. The drop in rooms tax revenues in Dennis reflect the loss of hotel rooms (years Yarmouth and the Cape experienced increases in tax reveneu) as well as simply bad tourism years (all three lost tax revenue).
