If I use a property manager for my rental, do I still need to file a return?

If Transient Occupancy Tax administration for your property is maintained by a property management company, and that company collects and remits all of your rental income and Transient Occupancy Tax, you do not need to file a return. You are responsible for their compliance with the County’s Transient Occupancy Tax Ordinance on your behalf. If you collect any rents outside of your agreement with the property management company, you would be required to file a return for the portion of rental income that you collected.
