Help Us Support Our Beloved Town!

The PPRTA, founded in 2013, 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.    

Membership in the Provincetown Part-Time Residents Taxpayers Association is open to any part-time resident taxpayer (including partner/spouse), over the age of 21, who owns real estate in the Town of Provincetown, Massachusetts, upon written/online application to the Treasurer. Each membership is entitled to one vote.


Your support of the PPRTA allows us to work with other part-time resident groups on the Outer Cape to ensure our voices are heard at the local, regional, and state levels. We speak on your behalf when appropriate and provide you with ways you can make yourself heard. The Provincetown assessor estimates that part-time residents own 85 percent of residential parcels (mostly condominiums) and pay 85 percent of the residential taxes, plus additional personal property tax, yet we have no voice or vote in budget matters.


Through our Spotlight series, the PPRTA illuminates the many positive contributions part-timers make to our community. Our seminars and annual social events provide networking opportunities with town leaders, year-rounders, and fellow part-time residents. 


This year, we are working hard to grow our membership and advocate more for all part-time resident taxpayers. We cannot do this without your support. 

We offer several different membership levels:

  • $35  - Individual

  • $50  - 2 people or more in the same household

  • $100 – Supporter

  • $200 – Friend

  • $500 - Benefactor

  • $1,000+ - Patron

Part time residents are my core customers and are significantly responsible for making this year the success it has been for Arcadia.  And once again, for the record, thank you very much for your part in making 2020 such a successful year at Arcadia. This year could have gone very differently for me and it's committed neighbors like you and your membership that truly made a massive difference. It is very much appreciated.

Many years ago, our Cabaret room held the first meeting of what would become the PPRTA. Bill and I were the first in the business community to recommend the entire ‘movement’.

Kevin Miller and I own Shor Home Furnishings at 240 Commercial Street. We have been in business here since 2008 and wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for the part-time residents. Not only do they frequent our shop and make purchases, but they are also a mainstay of our interior design business. Thank you for giving voice to our neighbors, friends, and clients who help enable us to live and thrive in our beautiful little town.
