    EU Court Rules Airbnb Must Provide Rental Info to Tax Authorities

    The European Union's top court ruled that Airbnb must provide information in rental contracts to tax authorities and withhold tax under a national regime. The ruling comes in response to a challenge from Airbnb to an Italian law from 2017 requiring Airbnb and other short-term rental sites to forward information from their rental contracts to tax authorities and to withhold 21 percent from the rental income and pay it to tax authorities. The company challenged the law in an Italian court, arguing that taxation and other requirements contravene the EU principle of the freedom to provide services across the bloc. The Italian court subsequently sought guidance from the Court of Justice of the European Union.
