The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
We believe in this platform, the sharing economy, Whether using the "host" program or renting an entire house, there should be fair regulation and tax collections for the homeowner's or property managers ability to rent properties in a short term fashion. We formed to work with our local government towards a solution. We have written a new public policy that we are presenting to our city government with the hopes of a changed law. The South Carolina state law is very vague and basically says local governments have the say so. I look forward to hearing the outcome of this commission.
