Insights for 2023

    In 2023, hosts on platforms like Airbnb expected to confront shifts in tax regulations, especially with 1099 reporting.
  • • Revised reporting threshold: Discussions circulated about potential revisions in the 1099 reporting thresholds for 2023. However, the IRS has officially affirmed that the threshold will remain at $20,000. The proposed reduction to $600 has been deferred until the 2024 tax year.

What are Airbnb taxes?

As a platform connecting hosts with travelers, Airbnb taxes have to be paid on the income you earn. Unlike other platforms, Airbnb doesn't impose taxes directly; it's the responsibility of the host to report and pay taxes on their Airbnb income. The responsibility for Airbnb taxes falls on hosts earning income through the platform. It’s important that you report your Airbnb income even if you don’t get a 1099-K from the platform as Airbnb will report your income to the IRS anyway. If you do make enough to cross the threshold, Airbnb will automatically issue a 1099-K to you. Typically, these forms are distributed electronically through your Airbnb account so keep your contact details updated.

Essential tax forms for Airbnb hosts

    Accurate tax filing means having the right paperwork. For Airbnb hosts, the primary document is the 1099-K. You may also need additional forms like Schedule C or other 1099 forms .
  • • 1099-K: This tax form shows your gross revenue from the platform.
  • • 1099-MISC: This tax form records any miscellaneous payments you received from Airbnb.
  • • Schedule C: This tax form reports 1099 income and tax deductions.

How can hosts save on Airbnb taxes?

    Let's now explore some strategies to save on Airbnb 1099 taxes :
  • • Deductions: Eligible business expenses related to your Airbnb activities like property maintenance, cleaning and other operational costs can be taken as business deductions.
  • • Estimated tax payments: If you owe taxes over $1,000 , make estimated tax payments quarterly to sidestep penalties.
  • • Retirement contributions: Consider contributing to a retirement account to reduce your taxable income.
  • • Tax credits: Explore credits like the Child Tax Credit or Earned Income Tax Credit to minimize your overall tax obligation.

Write-Offs you can claim on Airbnb taxes

    Leverage deductible expenses to significantly reduce your Airbnb tax liability. Deduct common write-offs like:
  • • Property expenses: Deduct costs incurred in maintaining and furnishing your Airbnb property.
  • • Cleaning and maintenance costs: Write off expenses related to keeping your property in top-notch condition.
  • • Utilities and supplies: Deduct the cost of utilities and supplies needed to provide a comfortable stay for your guests.
