From the FAQ section of AirBnB’s announcement for hosts:
Will my payouts be affected?
No. The tax(es) will be charged to guests.
How can I see the amount of tax collected on my behalf?
The amount is displayed in the Gross Earnings tab of your Transaction History.
Will you share my personal information when remitting tax?
No. We will be filing one tax return per jurisdiction with the total combined reservation revenue for all Airbnb bookings in the area. This means that all hosts will be represented by one payment amount, and we will not be providing your personal information on the return.
I’ve been collecting the above tax(es). What do I do now?
You’ll no longer need to collect this tax from guests who book their reservation after February 01, 2018.
Are there other taxes that I need to collect?
You are responsible for understanding and fulfilling all of your tax obligations. For a summary of the taxes collected by Airbnb for a listing, visit the Manage Listing page and click Local Laws. The process for collecting other applicable taxes from your guests is outlined here. As always, you must be upfront about any such taxes with guests before booking.
