City launches new online system for short-term rentals

Beginning this month, the City of Dallas launched MUNIRevs, a new online portal for short-term rental (STR) owners to register their property.

In addition to registering their properties, STR owners are also required to collect hotel occupancy taxes (HOT) from their guests and report and pay all HOT to the City on a monthly basis.

“We know many short-term rental owners may not be aware they should be registered and paying taxes to the City,” said Chief Financial Officer Elizabeth Reich.“That’s why we’re excited to offer this new online option because we want to make the process as easy and convenient as possible for our residents.”

A short-term rental is any residential property or part of a property rented for 30 days or less. This includes homes or other units, such as a garage apartment or backyard cottage, listed for rent on Airbnb, VRBO, HomeAway, and similar websites.
