HB 1850 に関してアップデートがありましたので報告します。


Hello Evan,

Good news, both the Hawaii House and the Senate voted yes on HB 1850 — the legislation that will allow services like Airbnb to collect and remit hotel and tourist taxes on behalf of our host community.

This is a big victory for home sharing in Hawaii!

The bill has been sent to the Governor, and he will decide in the next several weeks whether to sign the bill into law or veto it.

There’s still more to do to get this bill across the finish line, but we wanted to take a moment to sincerely thank everyone who testified, emailed, called, tweeted, or met with members of the state legislature over the past few months. Together, our community sent hundreds of powerful and compelling emails and and made hundreds of phone calls to legislators to advocate for this bill. Your hard work paid off.

HB 1850 benefits the home sharing community by:
Relieving individual hosts of figuring out complicated and burdensome tax regulations
Allowing Airbnb to collect and remit Transient Accommodations Tax (TAT) and General Excise Tax (GET) on behalf of our community
Protecting host privacy and streamlining registration requirements by allowing hosts to post Airbnb’s tax registration number in lieu of individual tax ID numbers
We applaud the legislature for taking the time to consider our community’s feedback.

Again, thank you for all you do as part of the Airbnb Action community! We’ll be in touch soon to let you know how you can help show the Governor why this bill is important for all of us.
