Can I collect occupancy taxes for bookings?
If you’re a host who has provided your business tax ID and relevant tourist tax registration info, you may be eligible to collect taxes directly from guests by using our professional hosting tools. You may do so only if you attest that the tax amount provided is correct, that you will pay the tax once it’s remitted to you, and if you grant permission to Airbnb to disclose tax-related and transaction information to the relevant tax authorities.
You have the option to set different tax types, the way the tax is charged (percentage per booking, fee per guest, fee per guest per night, or fee per night), and to note any exemptions for long-term stays. Aggregated tax reporting will be provided in your Transaction History.
