My opinion is airbnb is borderline not worth the hassle. Having to clean up after dirty people after a couple of days, and they expect to run the host ragged. Generally, the profile of someone who shops on airbnb is someone who likes to haggle and be cheap, not the nicest personality type to have renting your home. If heavy taxes were implemented for self hosting it would definately not be worth the hassle and stress just to be a middle man between the guest and the tax man. May as well leave the room empty and stay home and watch t.v. Just my opinion.
