REPORT NON COMPLIANT VACATION HOMES
As a professional association supporting and protecting the Florida Vacation Rental Industry, we are working closely with state and local authorities to ensure that all vacation rental homes and condo’s throughout the state of Florida are complying with all licensing and tax responsibilities.
Unlicensed vacation rentals negatively impact our industry, our professional reputation and our communities. If you know of any unlicensed vacation homes that do not have a Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulations license to operate a vacation rental or lack a local business license, or have neglected to pay local TDT taxes, we urge you to take the first step towards reporting unlicensed and tax delinquent activity. Each home classified as a vacation rental must be licensed and pay taxes.
If you know of or suspect that a person or business is evading the DBPR Licensing, Local Tourist Development Tax or Local Business Taxes you can report a possible tax violation to the following SE Florida county offices or the state DBPR for state licensing violations.
Please provide as much information to the reporting authority as possible.
State of Florida Dept. of Business & Professional Regulations
Reporting can be done online, by phone or by mail.
