The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
I have a brand new business that I am launching here in Delray Beach, FL. I rely on Airbnb to help me make the money I need to get my business running. I have a new employee starting next week and I am planning on hiring more shortly. There is literally no way I could do this without this extra income coming in from Airbnb. This is all taxable income that helps fund our government, and most importantly helps fund me so I can hire more. So I can help build our economy, so I can do my part as a citizen of this great country! Thank you for reading. Ryan O'Leary
