Digital plataforms (Airbnb, etc.) - Collection of the Lodging Tax in the State of Jalisco

A law reform was presented since September 26th that stated that these platforms should be obligated to pay the lodging tax. It was until last October 24th of 2017 that the legislative chamber of the State of Jalisco approved the initiative and launched a decree project, therefore, it is official: The platform will be obligated to collect, withhold and pay the Lodging Tax in the State of Jalisco.

 

The starting date of this obligation is still pending, but we are expecting new information about it on the following days, since it is now the Executive power the one that has to make that decision.
