Short Term Rentals

01/03/2022 update Re: Short Term Rentals


In 2020, the County of Bucks contracted with Granicus, Inc. (“Host Compliance”), a third-party vendor, to facilitate remittance and payment of the Lodging Room Rental Tax by the owner of Short-Term Rental (“STR”) properties. STRs are commonly rented on a per-night basis through websites such as Airbnb or VRBO, among others.

The County terminated its contract with Granicus in November 2021. Owners of STR properties who previously filed through Granicus’s web portal will not be able to do so for future filings. Instead, completed forms should be emailed to Robyn Goodnoe, Tax Administrator, at rmgoodnoe@buckscounty.org. Blank forms can be found on our website at www.buckscounty.gov/371

As a reminder, all STR property owners are required to file quarterly with the Bucks County Treasurer’s Office. If your booking website collects and remits the Lodging Room Rental Tax on your behalf, please note that on your remittance so we can reconcile your filing to the payment received.

You may contact the Bucks County Treasurer’s Office at 215-348-6244 with any questions regarding the Lodging Room Rental Tax. Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM.
