- Mammoth Lakes Condo Owners that want to conduct short-term Nightly Condo/Vacation Rentals of their property for periods less than 30 days, will be required to obtain a Business License from the Town of Mammoth Lakes for TOT (Transient Occupnacy Taxes), which are typically 13% of the nightly rental rate, paid up front by your rental guest. This permit can easily be obtained during escrow in your due diligence period, so your Nightly Rental License will be ready when you close escrow.
