Expert: Airbnb and the Quebec government


“Airbnb and the Government of Quebec have finalized the first-ever tax agreement in Canada that will allow Airbnb to collect and remit the tax on accommodation on behalf of hosts using its residential sharing platform. Effective October 1, 2017, Airbnb will automatically collect the 3.5 per cent tax on accommodation for bookings made in the 22 tourist regions of Quebec and will deliver it to the province, making the process easy for guests and government.” (AirBnB)
