Resolution

To report revenue using the Revenue by Marketplace feature, follow the instructions:

  1. Log onto your MyLodgeTax account at www.mylodgetax.com
  2. From Taxes, click Report revenue to open the Report Revenue page.
  3. In Nights Rented and Rental Revenue, enter the number of nights and the rental revenue for the period indicated for your Direct Bookings, Airbnb, and Vrbo.
    If revenue is earned through Evolve, enter Airbnb bookings on the Airbnb line, and all other bookings on the Direct Bookings line (do NOT put Vrbo bookings on the Vrbo line).  Vrbo does not collect tax on Evolve bookings as Evolve is classified as an "Integrated Property Manager" by Vrbo. Please see this FAQ with more information about reporting revenue from Evolve. 
  4. Optionally, check Revenue Includes Tax, If the revenue amount you entered includes the tax collected from your guest.
  5. Optionally, turn the toggle button on for Show Exempt Revenue if you need to report the exempt revenue. For more information, follow the instructions to report exempt revenue.
    If your rental property is located in an area where the Marketplaces (Airbnb, Vrbo, Evolve, etc.) remit the tax but the jurisdiction still requires you to remit tax returns, please report the revenue as exempt on the direct bookings line.  See What jurisdictions require property owners to report Airbnb or VRBO revenue as exempt?, for more information on this topic.
  6. Click Save to save the revenue details. The Tax Summary page opens.
  7. On the Tax Summary page, review and verify the tax details.
  8. Click Pay now. This initiates a withdrawal from your bank account.
  • Funds are withdrawn from your bank account within three business days.
  • A receipt is emailed to you with the details of your tax payment for the period.

Note: If you don’t click Pay now, your revenue is not submitted. You can leave your reporting page in saved status and return to complete reporting at a later date. Any saved revenue details are automatically be submitted at 5pm Mountain Time on 10th of the month and funds, if any, are withdrawn from your bank account within three business days.
