State & County Registration Requirements 

These are required Before You Apply for a Town Permit

APPLY FOR TAX LICENSE Opens in new windowThe Town of Paradise Valley levies a privilege tax on the gross business receipts derived from the rental residential properties.  Short-Term Rental Owners are required to apply for a Transaction Privilege (Sales) Tax (TPT) License from the Arizona Department of Revenue (ADOR) and post their license number on each online market place advertisement.  Even though online market place websites will remit taxes to ADOR on your behalf, owners are still required to file a tax return showing the gross receipts received from the online market place with a deduction equal to the amount received from the online market place.

Long-Term Rental: If you rent your property for more than 30 consecutive days, it is not necessary to obtain a rental permit from the Town.  However, it is necessary to apply for a TPT license and collect and remit taxes to ADOR.  The gross receipts from long-term rental are subject to a 1.65% tax.
