Las Vegas Just Fined A Homeowner Big Bucks For Vacation Rentals Without A License

Las Vegas Just Fined A Homeowner Big Bucks For Vacation Rentals Without A License

The Las Vegas City Council just levied a $72,900 fine to a homeowner for leasing her home on Airbnb and HomeAway without a license. 

I told you so:

Here is the math: The homeowner collected $108,000. The city lost out on $16,000 in owed room taxes. That's $16,000 reasons to get mad!

The permit costs $1,000 a year

 With the fine, the homeowner still netted $35,100.

My 2 cents: Get the permit! If you can't ( city regulations say vacation rentals have to be 660 feet from each other, so you are sunk if your neighbor gets there first), figure out the profit and loss before you go ahead. Because as you locals know, paying the fine is a business strategy here in Las Vegas.
