Here we go again! I suppose you are gathering this information so you can TAX it. Am I right? Of course,I am. I own my house..well me with the mortgage holder. This is one way I had found to help me pay my obligations by earning a bit of money by utilizing my greatest asset. The money is very helpful, well it will be if it ever catches on. I dont see that this is the government's business in any way, shape or form. Please spend your time on more important issues like protecting American citizens from foreign invasion, close our borders to illegal immigrants, cut taxes, stop overburdening small businesses with crazy regulations, stoppong ISIS. Airbnb and its hosts and guests take all the risk here. What does the government do to help out? We will no doubt pay income taxes on it anyway.
