Did You Know

Did you know you that all transient rental units, 30 nights or less, within the Town must be permitted and registered?

  • The Town requires a business tax certificate, a transient occupancy tax (TOT) certificate, and a transient rental inspection in advance of conducting transient rentals for any unit in Mammoth Lakes.
  • Only certain areas within the Town are zoned for transient rentals. To find out if transient rentals are permitted at your property, you can view the Town’s Parcel Viewer
  • Permitted transient rentals are required to report revenues, remit TOT and Tourism Business Improvement District (TBID) to the Town on a monthly basis.
  • TOT makes up a significant portion of the Town’s general fund that contributes to snow removal, road maintenance, community housing, parks and recreation programs, as well as other public services.  
  • The Town has a team dedicated to the enforcement of illegal rentals, TOT collection and partners with a new online compliance verification platform called Rentalscape. For Fiscal Year 2020-21, the Town collected $403,771 in unremitted taxes, penalties and interest and issued 213 citations for illegal rentals.

Contact info: You can anonymously report illegal rental activity by leaving a message on the TOT Hotline at (760) 965-3670 or by sending an email to the anonymous TOT compliance email

Contact the Town's Finance Department for assistance registering your property or for general questions about transient rentals in Mammoth Lakes at (760) 965-3660.
