How do taxes work for guests?
There are a few instances where an Airbnb guest may need to pay tax.
Some hosts are required by their local regulations to charge a tax. We recommend they include the tax in the price of the reservation, but some may require the tax to be paid directly upon check-in. We ask that hosts explain any taxes they may be required to collect in their listing description and their communication with guests prior to booking.
Additionally, Airbnb is required to collect VAT on its service fees in countries that tax Electronically Supplied Services. Currently, that includes all countries in the EU, Switzerland, Norway, and Iceland.
