Anyone renting a short term rental in the City of Woodland Park must apply for a Business License of $42.50 (per year) and submit both Sales and Lodging Tax (the 20th of every month).  Please check with your locations HOA if they allow STR's.

Airbnb or VRBO may claim they will pay these taxes. While they may pay the State, they do NOT pay the City. The City does not have a contract with Airbnb or VRBO to pay the City. It is your responsibility to pay the City Tax (9.79%) to the City. If you have any questions or are unsure of what taxes you are responsible for, please contact Jennifer Lehtinen (jlehtinen@cityofwp.net or 719 687 5214).
