Your local laws and taxes

Being prepared is key. We want to make sure you have everything you need to get your hosting journey off to a great start, and that includes reviewing local laws and regulations when you list your place.

What some cities may require

Many cities have rules that cover home-sharing, and the specific codes and ordinances can appear in many places (such as zoning, building, licensing, or tax codes).

In some areas, you may need to register, get a permit, or obtain a license before you list your place or accept guests. You may also be responsible for collecting and remitting certain taxes.

Your responsibility as a Host

You're responsible for where, when, and how you host, so we want you to be comfortable with the local laws and taxes. You can contact your local government with any questions.

To get you started, we offer some helpful resources about responsible hosting.

We ask that you educate yourself about the laws and regulations in your area and review our Nondiscrimination Policy before listing your place. When you accept our Terms of Service and list your place, you certify that you’ll follow applicable laws and regulations.

If you’re a Host in France, you’re confirming that you’ll follow applicable laws and any agreements made with third parties (ex: lease contract).
