Airbnb starts collecting tourist tax in Paris, its most popular destination

From The Verge, August 30, 2015

Airbnb has announced that it will begin collecting tourist tax in Paris on behalf of its hosts.

AIrbnb has previously taken similar steps to manage tourist tax in Amsterdam, collecting the small fee directly and then remitting it to the city. It’s also struck similar deals in cities across the US, including Portland, Chicago, and San Francisco.
