  • If you own a rental property in Sarasota County with a tenant staying less than one month, you are required to pay the Business Tax and may be required to pay the Tangible Personal Property Tax. If the property is available for six months or less, the Tourist Development Tax must be collected. You can report someone who may not be paying one of these taxes.
