Yes, at this time Airbnb only collects and remits the 6% Sales Tax and the 1% Manatee County Surtax to the Florida Department of Revenue.

As a taxpayer, you are still responsible for the collection and the remittance of the additional 5% Tourist Development Tax to the Manatee County Tax Collector.

Follow the link below to review the select areas in which Airbnb currently remits both the State and County Tourist Tax on behalf of the taxpayer. At this time, Manatee County is not included.
