Traveled in several places in Italy, reservation made either with booking.com or Airbnb, and the hosts asked us to leave the tourist tax in the apartment before we check out. It's small, usually 5-10 euros.
But to me, this seems like tax evasion, and the first time I refused to do it and got a very negative review on Airbnb. Say you are on a business trip, isn't it a rule that you should get a receipt for everything? how are you going to reimburse that tourist tax?
How should I deal with the situation fairly for both? I don't want the host to feel cheated, but I also want my invoice so that I feel good that taxes are being paid and not being pocketed by the host?
Another one yesterday at booking.com, I asked for the receipt and they told me that there is no receipt for city tax.
