MAYOR AND COUNCIL STUDYING SHORT-TERM HOME RENTAL REGULATIONS - Tucsonans who rent their homes to tourists could be regulated like any other hotel or bed and breakfast. Hotels and other businesses must pay taxes, have permits, inspections, and insurance, but short-term rentals aren’t subject to those regulations. Short-term rental companies, which facilitate property rentals by owners, were the topic of a presentation yesterday by Visit Tucson CEO Brent DeRaad and Marion Hook, chairwoman of the City of Tucson's Small, Minority, and Women-Owned Business Commission. Supporters of the changes estimate that $500,000 in bed taxes could be generated by short-term rentals in Tucson. The Mayor and City Council directed staff to meet with community partners to discuss possible regional solutions and report back in 90 days. Read more from the Arizona Daily Star.
