Air B-N-B Taxes

/ 97.3 The Eagle
             B-C’s Green party leader says a deal between the province and Air b-n-b on the collection of taxes from short-term rentals is a good step toward tax fairness. But Andrew Weaver says the agreement will not improve the need for long-term rentals. He says the province should encourage local governments to restrict and regulate short-term rentals, as Vancouver and Victoria have done. The government says it will introduce legislation allowing Air b-n-b to collect 11 per cent in taxes, with the money going toward housing and tourism initiatives.
