Founded in 2013, The Provincetown Part-Time Resident Taxpayers Association (PPRTA) is a 501(c)(4) non-profit, 100% volunteer-run organization of concerned taxpayers whose economic and cultural contributions in Provincetown are vital to the preservation and sustainability of the Town. Yet part-time resident taxpayers are denied a meaningful voice, participation in any local government decision-making, or the right to vote. This fundamental unfairness is at odds with the spirit and rich democratic history of Provincetown. It also violates the very tenets upon which our country was founded. It is the mission of the PPRTA to promote awareness and correct this fundamental inequality.
The PPRTA strives to exchange information with, and be a source of, information for, part-time resident taxpayers on significant Provincetown issues. We work to be a year-round voice in local, regional, and state governments for part-time resident taxpayers in Provincetown specifically advocating for the right to vote in Provincetown for all part-time resident taxpayers. The PPRTA encourages part-time resident taxpayers to participate in town government. We believe in empowering individual part-time resident taxpayers to communicate their views effectively.
The Provincetown Part-Time Resident Taxpayers Association mission is to correct the fundamental inequality that currently exists in Provincetown where part-time residents -- whose economic and cultural contributions are vital to the preservation and sustainability of the Town -- are denied a meaningful voice, participation in local government decision-making and the right to vote.
