I was working on my taxes for my accountant and went in the Dept. of Revenue MA (DOR) website (I have another business so I’m used to doing quarterly estimates).
I noticed that my Airbnb Account on the DOR website was flagged with a message for every month. I called DOR and was told that my taxes that Airbnb is charging the guest due to our new law is not being paid. They are the intermediary and by MA law they are required to be paying this tax . He said as long as I submitted my certificate number (and I verified this) that I was off the hook. He also said they are probably going to have to sue Airbnb.
