  2. A State Sales Tax ID number from the Utah State Tax Commission: www.tax.utah.gov or call (801) 297-2200.

Additionally, you must take the following steps to comply with section 4-2-1 & 4-5-3 of Park City’s Municipal Code:

Step 1: Submit the Nightly Rental application to business@parkcity.org. Once the application is processed, you will receive an activity number via email. You will use this activity number to schedule your inspection with the Building Department by calling 435-615-5105.

Step 2: Submit a copy of your passed Nightly Rental Inspection Report by email to business@parkcity.org.

Step 3: Once you have submitted the inspection report, you will receive payment instructions via email. Payments can be made by phone with a credit card or by remitting a check to: PCMC-Finance Department 445 Marsac Ave Box 1480 Park City, Utah 84060.

Nightly Rental applications generally take 15-30 days to approve and are mailed out with a receipt.
