FAQs

 

How do I submit the application for a Short-Term Rental Permit?

Answer:
We encourage using email to submit all documents related to your application in pdf format.  Use either zoning@jacksontwp-pa.gov or marner@jacksontwp-pa.gov. Both emails go to the same place.  Please, always reference the property address, such as 123 Sandalwood Court in the subject line. 

How and when is payment made?

Answer:
At this time, payment may be made by mailing a check. In order to consider your application complete, payment is required.

I don't have all my application paperwork, can I submit what I have ready?

Answer:
Yes.  We will accept applications that are not yet complete.   

I heard that Air BnB is paying the Hotel Tax on my behalf; is this true?

Answer:
Air BnB has an agreement with the state of PA.  So, if you rent exclusively with Air BnB, then yes, we will accept this arrangement.  This same arrangement is not true for Monroe County however. Each property owner is responsible to pay this tax on a quarterly basis. 

I understand an inspection is part of the process; when does that happen?

Answer:
When all required documents have been received, found acceptable and fee paid, the inspection can take place.  We will provide you with instructions to schedule the inspection.  Your permit is issued shortly after the inspection passes.
