April 7 2017 | Miami-Dade approves tourism tax agreement with AirbnbMay 28, 2017
The tourism tax-free days for Airbnb users in Miami-Dade County are over. County commissioners on Tuesday voted 10-3 to approve a memorandum of understanding between the Miami-Dade tax collector and the web-based short-term rental booking service provider.
Once it is officially signed by a scheduled date of May 1, Airbnb will start tacking on three taxes totaling 6 percent to all rentals in Miami-Dade, except Miami Beach where the company has to negotiate a separate deal with the city. However, Airbnb will not be required to provide the names and addresses of hosts and guests. According to a memo by Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez, tourism taxes collected by Airbnb could generate up to $6 million in the first year of the agreement.
