Our Negotiations for the Local Tax in Vienna

Regretfully, we have learned that the City of Vienna has prematurely broken off negotiations on the automated collection of local taxes via our platform. With a corresponding agreement, Airbnb would have automatically collected the tourism tax from the guest when booking and paid it to the City of Vienna. This would have meant less administrative work for both our host community and the city. Back in 2016, we offered to collect the tourism levy on behalf of our hosts in the City of Vienna. Immediately after the change of the Tourism Promotion Act we renewed said offer, and were in constructive negotiations for months. Therefore, we cannot understand the sudden termination of these negotiations. All the differences that the City of Vienna cited as reasons for the termination are bridgeable ones for Airbnb. We have communicated this to the city administration.
