The City Of Alexandria to Charge Airbnb Tax

The City Of  Alexandria To Charge Airbnb Tax

Effective April 1, 2018 the City Of Alexandria will start collecting taxes on Airbnb listings. The city will charge a 6.5% local tax, 2% state tax, and a $1 per night for bookings that are 29 nights or less.

The agreement Alexandria has with Airbnb is a first for Virginia. It comes not long after the city started mandatory registration for anyone doing short-term rentals. DC and Montgomery County Maryland have also made agreements with Airbnb.

 

Fairfax County has a public hearing scheduled to address Airbnb and concerns with short-term rentals including proposing a tax. The county will hold a Planning Commission hearing on May 3, 2018 and a Board of Supervisors hearing on June 19, 2018. According to the staff report from the meeting held on March 20, 2018 the ordinance would not supersede an HOA’s covenants.

Airbnb is a subject and comes up consistently with condo associations and HOA’s – some communities in the area have banned Airbnb rentals altogether. If you are considering buying an investment property or using your primary residence for Airbnb it's important to know what both county and HOA or condo association regulations are.
