The City Council approved the Short Term Rental Ordinance on November 1, 2018.  The ordinance went into effect immediately with the exception that a permit through Development Services would not be required until February 11, 2019.  If you own or operate a Short Term Rental, and you have not done so already, you should set up an account with the City’s Finance Department to pay your applicable Hotel Occupancy Taxes.  There is a link to the City Finance Department below.  Please note that the Short Term Rental Ordinance applies only to Short Term Rentals inside the City Limits of San Antonio.
