Establish a TDT Account
It's easy to establish a TDT account with our agency. Most of the process is completed online using our TDT portal. Please follow these five steps to set up your account.
Step 1 - Determine how you will manage your property
Will your property be self-managed, agent-managed or company-managed? Please read our how to guide Before Getting Started - Property Owners to learn more.
Step 2 - Create your login
You must have a valid email address to create your login. We will use this email address for all correspondence and reminders. Please read our how to guide Create Your Login.
IMPORTANT TIP: Please do not use dashes when entering your ID number (driver license, employer identification, federal identification, social security or state ID number).
Step 3 - Establish your TDT account
You must create and verify your login to the TDT online portal before you can create an account. During this step, you will set up your Business Account and add rental properties to your account. You will need the Property Control Number (PCN) for each property you intend to rent. Please read the how to guide Create a New TDT Account for detailed information about this important step in the process.
Step 4 - Obtain a Local Business Tax Receipt (BTR)
You must obtain a Local Business Tax Receipt for Short Term Rentals for each rental property.
Step 5 - File your TDT return and remit payment each month
File your return and remit payment online by 11:59 p.m. EST by the 20th of every month. For a month with no rental activity, you must file your return indicating $0.00 due. Please read the how to guide File and Remit Payment.
