Airnnb Agrees To Collect Quebec Tourist Tax

by Mike Godfrey, Tax-News.com, Washington

30 August 2017


The Quebec Government and Airbnb have reached an agreement that will see the house-sharing platform collect accommodation tax in the province.

Airbnb has committed to collecting the 3.5 percent tax on all stays lasting 31 days or less. It will remit the tax collected to Revenu Quebec on a quarterly basis. It will also provide Revenu Quebec with information on the amounts collected for each of the province's 22 tourism regions.

Airbnb will begin collecting the tax from October 1.

Quebec Tourism Minister Julile Boulet said: "The agreement announced today is a positive step toward the future and development of tourism in Quebec, since it will make it possible to adapt the taxation system to the new collaborative and digital economy."

The accommodation tax currently accounts for more than 50 percent of the tourism and promotion budget of the province's regional tourism associations. The tax is usually collected by Revenu Quebec and the sums returned to the regions on a quarterly basis.
