LD 1721 An Act To Require Transient Rental Platforms To Register To Collect and Report Sales Taxes, Rep. Hilliard (R-Belgrade)
This bill expands the provision for sellers required to register to collect and report sales taxes to include online real property rental platforms, such as homeaway.com or VRBO. The registration requirement begins 90 after the Legislature adjourns. Changes apply to sales beginning October 1, 2018. MTA testified in support of this bill, as we did last session on the same proposal (which wasn’t enacted in the final budget).
