Your lodging tax rate will take a bit longer to calculate. Hold tight and we’ll send your tax details via email as soon as they’re ready.


There’s more to the lodging tax puzzle than just your tax rate:

  • Most hosts are required to register with either their state, county and/or city tax authorities before collecting any taxes.
  • Some locations require hosts to charge nightly fees in addition to tax.
  • Ensure you’re charging taxes on all mandatory fees (like cleaning charges.)
  • Be aware of which taxes Vrbo or other rental marketplaces are paying for your property bookings on their platform.
