Permit Application

Be a tourism industry champion!  If you are a property owner and are considering renting your property as a lodging facility (or already are) get permitted for transient rentals and collect and remit room tax. 

If you have just recently purchased the property you will be renting, please note that your property cannot be permitted until the purchase has been registered in the Door County Land Record. If you would like to be permitted before the record has transferred, please submit a copy of the signed land deed with your application. 

Room tax revenues allow Door County to have a presence amongst travelers who have many options when it comes to selecting a vacation destination.  Despite its proven return and the support of all nineteen Door County municipalities, some property owners underestimate Destination Marketing and rent their properties illegally.  That’s why it is up to all of us to communicate tourism’s value in order to elevate room tax recognition, respect and support.  We have an opportunity to come together as champions of the tourism industry to ensure that tourism continues to thrive. Tell your friends, neighbors and visitors that value that room tax has in promoting Door County as a destination.  Encourage them to do their part in supporting Door County’s leading economic driver: Tourism.


Property owners intending on renting their property are required to permit their property prior to advertising.
