How do I handle a request for a local contact?


Your local jurisdiction has asked for a local contact that is registered with them and you would like to know how to handle the request. 




  • A lot of people give their local housekeeper's info as a local contact.  If you do this, please let the housekeeper know that you will be doing it and make sure they agree. Otherwise, some people give a neighbor's contact info. 
  • The contact should be someone who can be contacted in case of an emergency at the rental location who could be there to help out or coordinate services, such as calling a plumber or turning off the gas.
  • Unfortunately, we don't have any involvement in that process, it's a requirement of the county, separate from the tax filing that we are responsible for.
