Due to the tax laws in Nashville we are, just like a hotel, required to collect Hotel Tax (6%) Occupancy Tax ($2.50 per night ) and Sales Tax (9.25%) this will be handled through the Airbnb Resolution center
It’s written in our listing description and we remind you here again. TAX IS NOT INCLUDED in the Airbnb quote. As hosts in Nashville, we are required to collect taxes which consists of 9.25% Sales & Use Tax and 6% Hotel Occupancy Tax plus $2.50/night. We will give you a tax total for your booking and request that amount AFTER your booking via Airbnb payment request.
There are a few reasons why it isn't included in the nightly rate. One reason is because Airbnb changes the rate every few days depending on the market therefor the tax changes as well which we have to manually calculate because Airbnb doesn't feature the option for hosts to enter the tax rate for our city, we have to collect it in addition to our nightly rate. Nashville hosts are required to collect taxes as imposed by Davidson County. Unfortunately, the Airbnbs in Nashville that aren't collecting the taxes are not in compliance and don't have a permit to do so.
We try to be as upfront about it on our listing as much possible avoid surprises.

My husband and I moved to Nashville right out of college...we have watched it grow up over the past 20+ years we have been here. We love everything about it. We love music, history, trying new restaurants (and boy does our city have them!) and travel. We purchased this little bungalow this year and remodeled it..he was the muscle to the remodel and I was the pretty. It is filled with stuff we love! We use it for our own enjoyment, as a place for creativity and an escape from our kids! :) (shhhhh) and also as an airbnb home. It has been so much fun and we look forward to hosting you there!
