AirBnB Automatic Tourist Tax Collection to Come to Ski Resorts
In 2016, AirBnB France began automatically collecting tourist taxes from hosts letting their properties via the website. Taxes collected from the 19 most popular French destinations on AirBnB (such as Paris, Nice and Toulouse) generated €7.3 million in revenue for the cities.
By the end of Spring 2017, AirBnB will extend this tax inititative to include a further 31 popular French destinations, including some of the most popular French ski resorts.
The ski resorts to be affected by this are:
- Huez ( L’Alpe d’Huez included)
- Les Belleville (Saint-Martin de Belleville, Val Thorens and Les Ménuires included)
- Morzine – Avoriaz
- Bourg-Saint-Maurice (Les Arcs included)
- Val d’Isère
- Les Allues (Meribel included)
- Aime-La-Plagne ( La Plagne included)
- Les Deux-Alpes
- Saint-Bon Tarentaise (Courchevel included)
Over time AirBnB hopes to collect and remit tourist taxes in all cities where these taxes are applicable and AirBnB are currently working with the French government to develop a system which allows them to do so.
