I have been an Airbnb hostess for 3 years now. I started Airbnb because I live in NY State and my taxes are so high I have to find a way to supplement them. My home tax is 12,000.00 per year and my school taxes are 5,000.00 per year. I would move but I love my home of which I have put much sweat and equity into it. If Airbnb no longer exists I will be forced to sell my home and move to state like Florida which is more reasonable to it's residents.
