Adding and tracking tax and payout information
Here's where you can add and track information about taxes and payouts:
- Taxes: Manage your taxpayer information and tax documents
- Payments and payouts: Manage your payments, payout methods, and taxpayer assignments
- Transaction History: Find your completed payouts, upcoming payouts, and gross earnings
If you received a request to submit your taxpayer information and haven’t done so yet, we may have to withhold a percentage from your payouts to remit to the relevant tax authority. Tax withholding is applied on each reservation and against the listing owner.
In some instances, we may even need to block payouts until we receive your taxpayer information.
