    More Changes Could Come for Atlanta Short-Term Rental Hosts

    Residents of Atlanta, Ga., who rely on the money from having multiple short-term rentals in Atlanta told city council members on Feb. 20 that red tape makes it hard for them to stay afloat. The current short-term rental ordinance took effect nearly a year ago, but the city is not enforcing it yet because of legal questions. Those who host short-term rentals say excessive fees and taxes in the ordinance hurt their ability to make money. Hosts must live in Atlanta, pay $150 a year for a permit, and pay an 8 percent tax rental fee. A license is needed for each property under the changes, and every short-term rental in a single-family home or duplex would need to be at least 2,000 feet apart.
