Hello. I see that AirBnB has paid the Florida state taxes on the full rental amount. I am getting ready to pay the local Volusia County tax and I want to know if I should subtract my own service fee before I calculate that 6% to the county. I know that AirBnB will begin to remit these on my behalf starting in February
Thank you in advance
I pay a 5% for my Airbnb property in Manatee County and no you don't subtract any fees beforehand (service, cleaning, etc). I would ask the county directly.

Hi. I'm a Newbie Host. I property in Naples. Hoping that you could lend a little assistance.
I understand that Airbnb pays the State Tax of 7%, but that I'm responsible to pay Tourist Tax of 5%. Good so far. Now, when Renters make a payment for the property, let's say $1,000, they also will pay the 12% or $120. Right? $100 of that $120 Airbnb will pay the County. I then need to make a payment of $20 for the Tourist Tax. do I have that correct?
Hi there @Peter2563 - Were you ever able to figure this out? We are in the same boat now! We understand AirBnB will collect the state tax in Texas, but we are responsible for remitting local. Did you use the default or the custom tax collection buttons? Thanks! Jennifer
