Local Taxes

Taxes apply to your nightly price and fees for bookings, and are included in your earnings report. Guests are shown tax amounts as part of the booking total.


Airbnb automatically collects certain taxes from guests for each booking and remits them directly to local tax authorities. Learn more in this Airbnb article. Added taxes set by the host will be collected by Airbnb and remitted to the host.

Review the tax amount collected by Airbnb for your listing before adding taxes to your listing. Learn more from Airbnb here.
