      Effective December 1, 2018, lodging tax will be collected and remitted by HomeAway

      Dear Erinn,

      HomeAway will soon collect and remit lodging taxes for all online bookings. This means you’ll no longer be obligated to do so as part of the checkout process on HomeAway, VRBO, or VacationRentals.

      On the effective date above, the tax settings page in your dashboard will reflect full details about taxes we’ll be collecting on your bookings. Please carefully review that page for information unique to your property.

      CLICK HERE > to access your tax settings page and review your taxes and rates.

      More details:

      • Travelers will see the charge as Lodging Tax at checkout.
      • Lodging taxes are added to the traveler’s total amount paid.
      • For split payments, all lodging taxes are collected upon first payment.
      • You are liable for other taxes, including property tax, business tax, etc.
      • HomeAway will handle all refunds of lodging taxes it collects.

      Please note that if you accept a booking prior to the effective date above, you’ll be responsible to collect and remit lodging taxes.

      Thank you,
      The HomeAway Team
