Some hosts may be required by law to charge a tax, and some hosts may not.
thisopenspace reminds hosts that it is their responsibility to include taxes in the final booking offer, when they are required to collect taxes by law.
Hosts should inform guests of any taxes they may be required to collect when the final booking offer is made.
As booking offers should include any and all applicable taxes, guests do not pay any additional tax once booking payment is complete.
Not informing guests of required taxes upfront may deter them from booking a Hosts' space.
Hosts can always view their earnings and past bookings through their host dashboard.
