Taxes with Luxe

Applicable Taxes

Our system determines which taxes are applicable using the address you enter for your listing. Please check the details on the listing details page to make sure your address is correct. Even if Airbnb automatically collects and pays certain occupancy taxes on your behalf, you may still be required to manually collect other occupancy taxes. For example, Airbnb may collect regional taxes but not local taxes in some places. Also, Airbnb is not responsible for any tax collection errors due to typos.

Types of Taxes

Occupancy Taxes: We automatically collect and pay certain occupancy taxes on behalf of Hosts whenever a guest pays for a booking in specific jurisdictions. Hosts may need to manually collect occupancy taxes in other jurisdictions and in certain listed jurisdictions where Airbnb does not collect all applicable occupancy taxes. Automating this process doesn’t change which taxes are due or the total payout you receive as a Host. You’ll continue to receive your payout minus the standard Airbnb service fees. Automatic collection and payment simply make tax collection easier for everyone.

Pass-through Tax: Due to county or city regulations, Hosts are themselves required to collect and remit any additional taxes to local jurisdictions.

Voluntary Collection Agreement: This is an agreement that Airbnb enters with local jurisdictions to collect occupancy taxes from guests and remit them directly to local jurisdictions. Airbnb has made agreements with governments to collect and remit local taxes on behalf of Hosts. Airbnb calculates these taxes and collects them from guests at the time of booking. Airbnb then remits collected taxes to the applicable tax authority on behalf of the Host.
