New tax law for vacation property owners takes effect 2024

Riviera Maya, Q.R. — The government of Quintana Roo will fine digital platform lodging services and property owners who fail to pay taxes. The announcement came Monday after a State Congress meeting.

Vacation property owners who are not registered with the State Taxpayer Registry and without the corresponding operating license will be prevented from operating. The new rules will go into effect on the first day of 2024.

Digital platforms that do not provide their list of hosts to the state treasury will also be fined.

As of January 1, 2024, the government of Quintana Roo will apply the new rules to vacation property owners by comparing online ads with the database of the Quintana Roo Tax Administration Service (SATQ).

At the same time, a sanction is established for website hosts that do not comply with their obligation to provide their list of hosts to the tax authority in compliance with the provisions of the Lodging Tax Law of the State of Quintana Roo.

The initiative of Governor Mara Lezama indicates that they seek to reduce tax evasion of properties offered by digital lodging platforms such as Airbnb.
