The Tax Man Is Coming To Stay In Your Rental

Chicot Memorial

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — Mississippi is about to start taxing short-term lodging rentals booked online through companies such as Airbnb. The state already collects 7 percent sales tax on hotel and motel rooms and some cities also impose a 1 or 2 percent local tourism tax. Beginning Thursday the state Department of Revenue will start collecting state and local taxes at the same rate on short-term rentals in apartments, whole homes or rooms within homes. The new regulation reflects changes in how people book overnight stays.
