The first thing that caught my eye was sales tax on vacation rentals, as well as tourism and convention taxes. According to Idaho statutes, a vacation rental is really no different from a hotel.

It is the responsibility of the owner to collect and remit these taxes. If your second home or vacation rental is professionally managed, it is recommended that you check with them to ensure they are complying with these rules.
