If you operate a short term rental (STR) in Frisco, you must apply for a Frisco STR license. Before applying, you must also have a full understanding of the Town of Frisco Short Term Rental Requirements.

Forms Needed Before Applying

All STR license applications must be filed online. Before beginning the online application process, all applicants must complete the following forms and be prepared to upload these forms to the application portal:


If you are applying as an individual, not a business entity such as an LLC or an S-Corp, you will be applying as a “Sole-proprietor.” Sole-proprietors must also complete the following form and provide a copy of their state-issued ID. Please be prepared to upload these items before accessing the application portal.

Proof of Premise

If licensee is the owner of the STR property, proof of premise is not required. If licensee is anyone other than the owner, then a signed lease and express written permission from the owner will be required as proof of premise.

Property Managers

If you are applying for a license on behalf of a client, a unique registration log-in for each property is required.  Applicant name and licensee will be the owner of the property.

Payment and Fees

  • New STR license application fees are $125.00.
  • If you hold a current 2019 Town of Frisco Business/Sales Tax license, the STR license application fee will be $50.00.
    • Should you select the $50.00 payment option, you must enter your current account number in the field provided on the “License Details” screen. If you fail to do so, your application will be deemed incomplete.
  • Should you wish to submit application materials at this time, you will need to log back in after July 1, 2019 and access your shopping cart to submit payment.
  • Should you wish to submit all application materials and pay at the same time, you will be able to do so after July 1, 2019.
  • You will need to select your specific property from the Frisco property list in the application portal. Do NOT select any property with an owner listed as NULL.

Sales/Lodging Tax Filing

If you do not already have a Frisco sales tax account number, you will be issued an account number (different from your STR license number) and a PIN to enable online filing via e-mail. If you already have a Frisco sales tax account number, continue to file as normal.

Additional Information

If you would like to set up an appointment to apply for an STR license at Town Hall, or if you have any other questions, please contact the Town of Frisco Revenue Specialist.
