Help I am confused. I rent one room of my home that I live in, in Charlotte county Florida. Airbnb collects sales tax and room tax and submits them for me. Then I wondered if I needed a license from Florida. So I went to dbpr (Dept of business and professional regulations). In trying to determine if I need to obtain a license and under what category I came upon this on the dbpr site:
Do I need a license for my rental?
If renting rooms: Renting a single room or rooms other than the whole unit is not classified as a public lodging and would not require a license from DBPR, Division of Hotels and Restaurants. Please be advised your business may still be subject to city, county or other local authority jurisdiction.
Still not sure what I need since airbnb sent in the tax? Will see my accountant in a few week but anyone who knows what if any is needed please replhy.
