Anyone Have An STR In Georgia With A Direct Booking Website?

We have an STR in Northeast GA that is currently listed on AirBnB and VRBO. I'm using Guesty for Hosts and I'm playing around with the website builder and I'm strongly considering also offering a direct booking option. I know that AirBnB and VRBO collect and remit the taxes for me on those platforms, but that burden would obviously shift to me for the direct bookings. It is my understanding that I have to collect and remit the following:

7% Georgia Sales Tax

8% Occupancy Tax (This is what the county that we operate in requires. I realize that this number can be different depending on the county)

$5 Per Night Georgia Innkeeper Fee

Is there anything I'm missing or overlooking?

Atlanta, Georgia
