Airbnb / Short Term Rental Regulation Summary

Similar to Houston’s notable lack of specific short term rental ordinances, vacation rentals are largely unregulated in Phoenix. A statewide law passed in 2017 expressly prohibits most local regulation of short term rentals across Arizona, much to the chagrin of more progressive cities like Tucson and Sedona. Currently in Phoenix, short term rentals are governed by existing zoning regulations and not much else. There are no residency requirements, no annual caps on nights rented, and no limit on the number of short term rental properties a host can operate. State and local lodging taxes are collected automatically by the major listing platforms and hosts are required to post their tax license number on all ads and listings. Also notable: “Party on, Ducey?” | Tax license numbers now mandatory across AZ
