If you have or are thinking about having an AirBnB rental, you should know that there are a variety of rules and regulations surrounding them, including ones regarding taxation. Below is a brief overview of some of the various city and county rules, but it is by no means an exhaustive listing and as rules change they may not be reflected here.
According to the Ventura County Tax Collector's website (http://www.ventura.org/ttc):
You may be obligated to acquire a Ventura County business license and pay a Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) to the County of Ventura if you rent out a residential property for periods of 30 days or less in the areas of Ventura County that are outside any city limits. Often described as short-term vacation rentals, and often listed on websites like Airbnb.com (among several others), these rentals are subject to Ventura County's Uniform Transient Occupancy Tax Ordinance (Division 11, Chapters 1-3, Sections 11111-113212). The ordinance does not apply to owners who continuously reside on the property while renting out rooms. For further information, contact the Treasurer-Tax Collector at 654-3775.
An owner of a residential dwelling located within the City of Ventura who rents their property for less than 30 days is required to:
A Nuisance Response Plan provided by the vacation rental owner(s) is posted on our website and provides a contact name and number should short-term renters impact the neighborhood with nuisance activities, such as:
Continued unacceptable behavior should be reported to the City and is subject to citation and fines.
The Nuisance Response Plan is not intended to be used for frivolous, unsubstantiated complaints. Common sense should be exercised in the case of matters that are best attended to by the Police Department or City Code Enforcement Officers.
As of April 2019 there is nothing in Oxnard’s ordinances that explicitly allows or prohibits short-term rentals.
City leaders said they’ve been slow to address the issue. Three years ago, the city led a community workshop on the matter and still no ordinance is in place.
In general, the council supported a lengthy list of best practices that staff members curated from other cities. They include:
As of November 2018 there is a ban on AirBnB facilities within the Ojai area. The ban applies to an area that runs from Lake Casitas to the Dennison Grade, including Meiners Oaks, Oak View and Casitas Springs. It does not apply to the city of Ojai, which is not under the Board of Supervisors’ jurisdiction, but the city has already outlawed all short-term rentals including those where the owners live. The ban affects properties where the owners do not live, prohibiting them from renting the homes for stays of fewer than 30 days. They may still rent rooms for short-term stays in their own personal residences.
We are not aware of other city specific requirements at this time. As rules can be enacted at any time and may not be reflected in this article, we recommend that you verify with your city's government what your particular restrictions are.
