Airbnb To Begin Paying Pa. Hotel Tax

Law360, New York (June 15, 2016, 6:15 PM EDT) -- Airbnb Inc. will collect and remit taxes from its Pennsylvania guests beginning July 1, making the state the latest addition to more than two dozen other jurisdictions where the company collects taxes directly from its users, the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue announced Wednesday.

In a statement from Department of Revenue Secretary Eileen McNulty, the state said it struck a deal for the home-sharing site to begin collecting and remitting the state's 6 percent hotel occupancy tax on behalf of hosts in Pennsylvania, which McNulty said will generate nearly $1 million in new revenue for the commonwealth.
