You do need a business license and you need to sign up to pay the Transient Occupancy Tax. We went to the Office of Finance to sign up as the website doesn’t have a way to sign up online for our type of business. You can pay the monthly Transient Occupancy Tax online once you’re signed up. Here is a link to the website.
My husband went to the Los Angeles Planning Commission hearing where they discussed a limit on the number of days you can host. The final vote was to allow hosting 180 days per year. Now, the Los Angeles City Council will review the regulations and make their recommendations. Once they have made their recommendations the mayor will sign the bill or veto it.
