Florence Tourist Tax

Hi, I'm new to hosting. My apartments are in Florence, Italy. I have been collecting the mandartory 2,50 euro city tax. My question is, where do I turn it in and how frequently must it be turned in? I can't find any information online about this. Thanks in advance for any information.

I'm wondering if i want to start listing my apartment on airbnb in Florence, Italy, do I need to register with the municipality first? Should I have a permit or license before hosting on airbnb?

Booking.com states that the Florence tourist tax in 2020 will be increased from 3 euro to 4 euro, (per person/night up to 7 nights.) I don't see this reflected on the AirBnB.

 

Please advise if you will be updating this as you, AirBnB, are collecting it from the guest as part of their reservation cost.

Hi, I would suggest that you speak with your local Tourist Office. In France there are 3 specific periods , the 1st period runs from 1st January to 30th June. I collect the tax, record each guests visit on a spreadsheet, that the Tourist Office has produced & then take a cheque plus a print of the spreadsheet to the Tourist Office at the end of each period. Hope this helps.
