Can I collect sales tax only from a sale paid by another person
I must collect sales tax only from people who stay at my bed and breakfast and the rate is paid through airbnb. Since they don't collect the sales tax, I want to swipe the guest's card and have the charge only go to tax, can that be done?
Re: Can I collect sales tax only from a sale paid by another person
You're able to charge your customers any amount through the Square Point of Sale app, however tax collection and information around how you would need to report and collect would be best advised by a tax professional.
I recommend reaching out to AirBnB as well as a tax professional directly to see what the best way to handle this would be.
I'm sorry I can't be of more assistance with this specific question, but tax collection and processes vary between states and areas, so we like to leave that advice up to the experts.
