If you earn money renting out your RV, you most likely have to pay taxes. Whether you earn money through a company, or as an individual, you can factor your estimated tax costs into your pricing. Those costs can be part of your nightly rate, or added as a separate fee.
Additionally, Outdoorsy provides an annual accounting of your rentals to make tax reporting easier. You can locate your earnings at any time in your Dashboard. If you exceed $20,000 in revenue or 200 completed bookings, Outdoorsy will send you a 1099-K form. As always, know your state laws, and consult with a professional to determine your actual tax liabilities.
Sales tax rates vary by state, vehicle type and even rental period. For example, in Austin, TX in 2019, a trailer rental of less than 30 days is 10%, but for 30+ days, the tax drops to 6.25%.
Keep in mind that most states require you to have a tax license or permit to collect sales/rental tax. Please contact your local department of revenue to learn more. For the most accurate and up-to-date information, please consult with a tax professional.
