The Short-Term Vacation Rental Ordinance went into effect in March of 2016. The purpose of the ordinance is to establish regulations for the use of privately owned residential dwellings as short-term rentals in order to minimize the negative secondary effects on surrounding properties. All residential dwellings utilized as short-term rentals as defined by Ordinance 927 must register with the County Transportation and Land Management Agency and pay associated registration fees. Further information and registration forms can found by clicking below.
In addition, short term rentals by nature are subject to the payment of Transient Occupancy Taxes and the ordinance underscores the requirement of their timely payment. All such rentals are required to register with the County Treasurer-Tax Collector to fulfill their Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) obligations. Registration forms can be found here. Transient Occupancy Taxes are due on a quarterly basis and filing forms can be found here. Stays for more than 30 consecutive days and certain employees of foreign governments are exempt from paying TOT, but must present satisfactory credentials and file for the exemption.
