[Ticker] Airbnb losing European tax wars

EU Reporter

An advisor to the EU court in Luxembourg has said Italian authorities can force US property-rental firm Airbnb to give up data to national tax authorities. The firm recently lost a similar case in Belgian courts, in a challenge to its business model in Europe. “Airbnb wants to be a good partner on tax,” it said. The EU court advisor’s opinion is not binding, but most verdicts follow suit.
