7.02.890 Residential Rental Registration Program.

(Added by Ordinance No. 189086, effective July 25, 2018.)

A.  For tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2018, all owners of residential rental property in the City are required to register the property and annually provide a schedule that includes the address of all owned residential rental units within the City.  The Director may require additional data about the rental location by administrative rule.  For purposes of this section, except where defined by administrative rule in accordance with Section 7.02.210, “residential rental unit” means any residential property rented or offered for rent for a period of more than 30 consecutive days. If a property contains more than one residential living quarter, the term residential rental unit refers to each separate living quarter.

B.  In the first tax year of the Residential Rental Registration Program, no additional fee will be imposed in connection with the registration. In subsequent years, a fee may be enacted to partially or fully recover the administration costs of the program in addition to other services as the Council may direct. Any fee schedule would be created and amended by administrative rule in accordance with Section 7.02.210.  Section 7.02.700, Penalties, shall not apply for failure to file rental registration data in the 2018 tax year.  Beginning in tax year 2019 and beyond, the penalty provisions of Section 7.02.700 shall apply.
