I have just booked an AirBnB in Salzburg and received a request from the host to complete an online form for City Tax purposes. The form includes all personal details, including name, birth date, address, place of birth, passport or drivers license numbers. I have no issue paying city/tourist tax, but am hoping someone can explain to me why they need all these details and if there is any legislation or even a website that can explain what personal details must be given for the purposes of tax. I have not received this request from any other Air BnB host and have made bookings in France, Italy, Croatia and Austria.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
