Online Application, Renewal & Payment

Lumpkin County uses Host Compliance for the submission of the following:

  • Monthly Short-Term Rental tax payments
    • If you only use 3rd party platforms, such as, AirBnB, VRBO, etc., to collect your short term rent from, those platforms pay the taxes to the county on your behalf
    • If you either sometimes or exclusively collect rent directly from a guest, you are responsible for paying the hotel taxes to the county
  • Short-Term Rental License renewals
  • Submission of new Short-Term Rental License applications

As a reminder Short-Term Rental Licenses must be renewed by December 31st each year. Tax payments for your property are due each month and can be submitted by ACH transfer or Credit/Debit card online.
