Short Term Rental Tax Reports and Instructions

Important: Some systems experience calculation errors when using the self-calculating reports.  
You should always review and confirm all computations when using 
the self-calculating reports to ensure there are no calculation errors.

Our forms were programmed to use Acrobat Reader - not Preview - 
please open and use the form in Acrobat Reader

Attention Chrome Users: By default, Chrome uses a built-in PDF viewer to open PDFs.  This will cause a calculation error in the Transient Lodging reporting forms.  If you have disabled the built-in PDF viewer, Chrome will use Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader to display PDFs.  You must use Adobe to get a correctly calculated Transient Lodging reporting form.  You should chose Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader as your default PDF viewer in Chrome.  Here's how:

  • 1.) Enter chrome://plugins into your address bar.
  • 2.) Scroll down to either Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader (you will only see them if you have them installed).
  • 3.) Click the Enable link.

If you're having problems with our forms, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.

Use the new Short Term Rental tax forms if you are a Bed & Breakfast, Vacation Rental (owner / operator does not live at home) or "Home Stay" (owner / operator lives at home).
