             Globally, private hosts rent airbnb rooms to tourists or business travelers. But because many of the bed tax wrong or not at all, there was anger with the municipalities. A solution now seems to be found.
            

        

        The rental platform Airbnb will in the future overnight stays in Dortmund of the guests with the accommodation costs automatically also the bed tax and pass on to the city. The municipality and the online provider have agreed on this. The Ruhr metropolis is thus the first city in Germany, in which online providers take over this task, shared the online platform on Thursday with. Previously, the Ruhr news had reported on the "accommodation agreement".
The background: Like many other cities, Dortmund pays 7.5% of the accommodation price for private accommodation in hotels or rented rooms. Until now, the Airbnb hosts had to collect the bed tax from their private travelers and pass it on to the city. This had led to clear deficiencies and a high administrative burden.
"We now have a tax privilege" By the agreement between the city and Airbnb this is now to be improved. From January 1, 2018, Airbnb will collect the bed tax directly and pass the money on to the city. This would relieve the city administration and the hosts, said the managing director of Airbnb Germany, Alexander Schwarz. The commune also welcomed the agreement. "We have a tax right now, and if there is a way to reach it, that's okay," said Dortmund's city coach Michael Meinders on Thursday. He did not comment on the number of nights spent and the amount of tax collected.
Airbnb, according to its own data, has already signed an agreement for the automated collection and distribution of accommodation taxes with 310 cities and municipalities. Since the launch of the 2014 model, over 250 million euros of overnight and tourism taxes have been levied and transferred to the respective local authorities, the company reported. In Germany, Dortmund was the pioneer. However, Airbnb is in dialogue with other cities on such cooperation.
