Taxes paid to hosts

There are a few instances where a guest may need to pay tax to a host.

Some hosts may be required by their local regulations to charge a tax and some hosts may be exempt. It is the host's responsibility to determine if they are required to charge a tax. We recommend they include the tax in the price of the booking. 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. Guests are not required to pay any additional taxes once the booking payment is complete.
