2022 submittal instructions.

San Juan County has a vacation rental compliance program.  All holders of vacation rental permits are required to annually submit a certificate of compliance to the Department of Community Development.  Failure to submit a certificate annually will result in fines and penalties including revocation of the permit. 

Beginning in 2021, the fee for a certificate of compliance is $145 if submitted online through the permit portal and paid by credit card; or   $160 if submitted on paper, or paid by cash or check.  This fee was adopted by Resolution 34-2020.  The deadline for submitting your 2022 certificate of compliance will be December 31, 2022. 

The Department of Community Development is currently in the process of notifying non-compliant permit holders of their requirements.  If you have received a letter indicating that you are not in compliance, you will need to follow the instructions in the letter.  Depending on how many years have been missed, you will either 1) be required to submit one or two overdue certificates; or 2) abandon your permit.
