Scottsdale’s new short-term rental working group is halfway through its six planned meetings, with information and work already flowing from the municipal committee.
During the past three weeks, two city employees have identified 1,000 short-term rental locations in violation of contact or transaction privilege tax licensing requirements.
The working group was formed earlier this year to examine existing laws and tools available to the city regarding short-term rentals. Members include residents, Realtors, hospitality officials and two Scottsdale City Council members.
