Mazatlan, Sinaloa.- The governor of Sinaloa, Quirino Ordaz Coppel and Chris Lehane, global director of public policies of Airbnb, met at the Convention Center to conclude an agreement on tax matters between both parties, through which Airbnb commits itself to collect and remit the 3% tax on the lodging for each reservation made on the platform in the state as of June 1, 2018.

In markets like Sinaloa, this means that travelers can reach any corner of the state, even if they do not have traditional tourist infrastructure.

We maintain our interest and commitment of collaboration with Mexican governments, in favor of innovation, entrepreneurship and tourism promotion “concluded Chris Lehane. Courtesy Photo In this note:
