Hi, I am new to Airbnb and have realized after a couple of guests that Airbnb is not collecting occupancy tax for me. After talking to CS I have not got the answer to my question. I see some people in the area have the tax taken out and others not. I would like to have my guests pay it when booking. Can anyone give me some advise? My house is in Warren county which isn't even listed in the NY county help section. Thanks in advance.
I needed to add a 4% occupancy tax that Warren county has on the STR, it drove me nuts till I finally got a hold of a customer service rep that knew what to do. That said the best advice I could give you is to call airbnb, there are a bunch of steps you have to take before that tax bracket appears on your account. The call took me a half hour or so and they were able to add the appropriate tax going forward.
