Resources for tax season

As we near the April 17 personal income tax filing deadline in the United States, Airbnb hosts across the country are preparing and finalizing their tax returns. We want to help and so today, we’re announcing some new resources that will help ensure Airbnb hosts pay their fair share:

  • Airbnb has partnered with Stride to provide hosts access to a range of resources that help ensure hosts meet their tax obligations, receive the deductions they deserve, and have information about the tax rules that apply to hosts.
  • Through the Stride partnership, Airbnb Hosts will receive discounted tax preparation and filing assistance from H&R Block.
  • Airbnb has also partnered with TurboTax to provide discounted assistance with tax preparation for hosts.

As always, Airbnb hosts can learn more about their tax obligations by visiting our Tax Resource Page.

As a global platform, helping hosts meet their income tax obligations is just one of the steps we have taken to contribute to the communities our hosts and guests call home. Over the last four years, we’ve also partnered with hundreds of governments around the globe to make it easier for our hosts and guests to pay their fair share of hotel and tourist taxes. By April 15, 2018, we will have entered into tax agreements with over 370 jurisdictions globally, and collected and remitted more than $592 million in hotel and tourist taxes throughout the world.

It is important to note that the current hotel and tourist tax system were designed for big hospitality providers with teams of lawyers and accountants, not regular people who occasionally share their home. Accordingly, complying with these rules can be burdensome. Our work with governments around the world to establish formal agreements has reduced this burden for hosts. We are constantly working to help governments collect more tax revenue in more places.

Unfortunately, other home sharing companies have generally declined to collect and remit hotel and tourist taxes on behalf of their users. Booking.com tells its users to be “familiar with any local taxes and laws,” saying it operates an “agency model” and is not responsible for tax collection and remittance.  Similarly, Expedia’s HomeAway has brokered only a handful of agreements to collect and remit these taxes for its users, citing agreements with just seven jurisdictions while claiming that the Company “assume[s] no liability for legal or regulatory compliance” outside of those jurisdictions.
