Withholding tax

If you received a request to submit your taxpayer information and haven’t done so yet, we may have to withhold a percentage from your payouts to remit to the relevant tax authority. Tax withheld is applied on each reservation and against the primary Host.

In some instances, we may even need to block payouts until we receive your taxpayer information.

Countries with withholding tax

Airbnb may be required to withhold taxes from your payouts by the following countries:

                Viewing your tax details

                You can see the amount of tax withheld in your Transaction History and in your Reservation Details page. Where applicable, the total amount withheld will be included on the tax documents we issue, so you can account for them on your tax returns.

                Viewing withheld tax

                When you're viewing your reservation Host payout, any withholding tax appears in the Deductions section. The amount is computed based on the total night room fees and the applicable rate. Rates vary by tax authority and any taxpayer information that you provide.

                Note: The US income tax withheld line displays withholding against the primary Host only. If a Co-Host is subject to tax withholding, it will not appear on the Reservation Details page.

                Adding taxpayer information

                To add or revise your taxpayer information, in your Account go to the Taxes section.

                Once we receive and validate your taxpayer information and determine that withholding isn’t required or if a lower rate applies, we’ll stop or reduce the percentage of withholding on your future payouts.
