Airbnb Doesn’t Pay Full Hosting Taxes in Florida

In Florida, Airbnb claims to collect and remit the taxes on our condo rental. Unfortunately, they only do so for the state, which is 6%. Typically hosts can simply go in and add their additional taxes required by their county and other business taxes.

Florida is hard blocked. I have been trying for a month solid to get through, even through messages. I’ve been on hold long enough to be hung up on three times now. It doesn’t seem like a big deal until you understand it is an additional 6% the are not charging. They are only charging my guests 6%. It should be 12%. They are not charging county fees of 5% or BTR 1%. What option do I have? VRBO?
