I was glad to see that HA will now be collecting local taxes in PA, based on Pennsylvania Act 109 of 2018 passed last October. However, according to this post, my county (Schuylkill County) is not included in the list. We have a 5% room tax, in place for several years. The county tax collector has told me that this tax should be among those you collect and remit, based on the new law. But that is not happening to my reservations.
I have spoken to customer service twice, and have opened a ticket twice in the last two weeks. I provided a copy of the law two days ago. Can you help make sure they correct the problem for my county as well? I already have one upcoming booking where they failed to collect the tax. I need that booking fixed and know that future bookings will be correct as well.
Thank you so much for question. We are currently working through adding many counties in Pennsylvania, this is just the first round so stay tuned.

We are working diligently to implement the tax collection in the remaining Pennsylvania Counties, including Schuylkill, over the next couple of months. Thank you for your patience. We will send a communication approximately 2 weeks in advance of any tax collection changes applicable to your listing.
