Airbnb and St. Louis License Collector Announce Voluntary Tax Agreement
ST. LOUIS, MO, (, November 14, 2018 - Officials of Airbnb and the Office of the City License Collector have announced a tax agreement has been finalized. Effective December 1, 2018, Airbnb will automatically collect local taxes for all Airbnb bookings in St. Louis City, and remit said taxes to the License Collector's office.

This agreement comes at a time of dynamic home sharing growth in the St. Louis region. St. Louis City is the top home sharing market in Missouri, welcoming 88,500 guest arrivals in 2017 for a total of $9.14 million in host income.

Earlier this year, Airbnb reached a tax agreement with the Missouri Department of Revenue. That accord went into effect Feb. 1 with Airbnb also automatically collecting and remitting the state sales tax along with a variety of local taxes.

"Having met with dozens of St. Louis hosts over the past few months, I've been blown away by their passion for supporting tourism in their city," said Greg Greeley, Airbnb President of Homes. "This tax agreement will ensure they can easily pay their fair share in taxes while providing a major and growing revenue stream for the city. At the highest levels of our company, we are committed to working with local hosts and policymakers to enhance the positive economic impact of home sharing in St. Louis."

In a release, St Louis City License Collector, Mavis Thompson stated, "We are proud to have collaborated on this deal which will unlock a new source of tax revenue for the City. It allows Airbnb St. Louis hosts to pay the taxes as part of its Airbnb fee and provides the License Collector's office with a single entity responsible for remitting the taxes. Since the State of Missouri reached its agreement with Airbnb, St. Louis City is one of the first jurisdictions to follow suit."

Explore St. Louis President Kathleen "Kitty" Ratcliffe was also very pleased with this collection agreement. "We want to thank Airbnb and the St. Louis License Collector office led by Mavis Thompson for coming to terms. This tax agreement provides transparency, fairness and parity for all our lodging partners. It levels the playing field. Additionally, this tax revenue is important to Explore St. Louis for marketing, the Regional Arts Commission for arts' organization grants and the City of St. Louis for general revenue and bond payments."

Boeing Wins U.S. Air Force T-X Pilot Training Program Contract
ST. LOUIS, MO, (, September 28, 2018 - U.S. Air Force pilots will soon train for combat with T-X jets and simulators from Boeing.

The $9.2 billion award funds 351 jets, 46 simulators and associated ground equipment.

"Today's announcement is the culmination of years of unwavering focus by the Boeing and Saab team," said Leanne Caret, president and CEO, Boeing Defense, Space & Security. "It is a direct result of our joint investment in developing a system centered on the unique requirements of the U.S. Air Force. We expect T-X to be a franchise program for much of this century."

Boeing and its risk-sharing partner Saab designed, developed, and flight tested two all-new, purpose-built jets - proving out the system's design, repeatability in manufacturing and training capability.

"This selection allows our two companies to deliver on a commitment we jointly made nearly five years ago," said Håkan Buskhe, president and CEO of Saab. "It is a major accomplishment for our partnership with Boeing and our joint team, and I look forward to delivering the first trainer aircraft to the Air Force."

Boeing is now clear to begin placing orders with its suppliers, including Saab. More than 90 percent of Boeing's offering will be made in America, supporting more than 17,000 jobs in 34 states.

Saab serves the global market with world-leading products, services and solutions within military defense and civil security. Saab has operations and employees on all continents around the world. Through innovative, collaborative and pragmatic thinking, Saab develops, adopts and improves new technology to meet customers' changing needs.
