The agreement Air BNB has with the occupancy taxing entities in the USA  does not include individual host information.  @Hector110  Air BNB remits the tax in a lump sum.  As for income tax preparation, since the tax was not income to you and therefore you did not pay it as an individual, it is not reportable.  In my case, I collect the tax required by my city so it is included in my gross income, I deduct the tax I remit to the City.

How do you collect it though? I thought it would be charged at booking and I don't see it

"agreement Air BNB has with the occupancy TAXING ENTITIES in the USA"  I find it difficult to believe that every city and county in the USA are able to come up with the same agreement

Has anyone gotten a tax report from AirBnB?  I have been on phone with "support" x5 and cannot get anyone to understand the issue and do something about it.     Do we think AirBnB is sending our tax payment without an address identifier or tax ID number?  What do the taxing entities do with this money?
