Do I need to pay taxes on income I earn from hosting experiences?

In the United States, Airbnb provides 1099s to hosts who make more than $20,000 and have more than 200 transactions. In general, Airbnb doesn’t give tax advice, and you should consult with a tax professional for information about how to report what you earn from hosting experiences.

If you’re a host who’s partnering with a nonprofit organization and you’re hosting a Social Impact experience, your payout will go directly to the nonprofit’s financial institution. Airbnb waives all fees, and 100% of the funds collected from guests go to the nonprofit.

To stay informed regarding your taxes, visit the Experience Resource Center. You can also find tips and resources specific to your local tax laws, regulations, business licenses, and more in our Responsible Hosting articles.
