Why Airbnb is requesting your taxpayer information
Airbnb is required to collect taxpayer information to fulfill tax calculations and reporting obligations in multiple countries. We’re currently obligated to collect taxpayer information in the following countries:
- All 27 European Union (EU) Member States
- United States
This list is subject to change as we continue to support new countries.
Please note: Only Hosts who have active listings based in the countries above will be eligible to provide taxpayer information for that country.
European Union: Taxpayer information collection is required under DAC7 to comply with EU tax reporting regulations. Tax info is required for EU residents, and for non-EU residents who host listings, experiences, or act as a registered Co-Host in the EU. Learn more.
