About Quebec sales tax
The province of Quebec requires Turo to collect Quebec Sales Tax (QST) from hosts for trips taken in all vehicles listed in Quebec. If your vehicle is listed in Quebec and is booked by any guest — from Quebec or from anywhere in or outside of Canada — you’ll incur this tax. Vehicles listed in other Canadian provinces are not subject to this tax.
Sales tax calculation
QST is calculated at 9.975% of the Turo fee (Turo’s take rate of the earnings). Turo takes 30% (trips booked with the Standard protection plan) or 20% (Commercial Host trips) of the following: Trip price (your vehicle’s listed rate multiplied by the trip length, minus discounts), delivery fee, Extras, additional distance charges, and additional usage fees and late fees.
Host earnings statement
Quebec sales tax will appear as a separate line item on your Trip receipt for each transaction. If you submit a reimbursement request for additional distance, the sales tax applied to this payment amount will show as a separate line item on the receipt.
