The Daily Rental Tax is levied as a percentage of gross receipts, based on the rate set by City Council on May 5 each year. Every entity collecting the tax must file a short-term (daily) rental application by January 31 each year and report and pay taxes quarterly. All new short-term rental businesses must file within 30 days of the business start date.
