So with the recent news that NY (and other places) are trying to ban whole unit AirBnB rentals, it’s got me thinking of ways to skirt the law should the same thing happen where I am.
Hosting has gone so well that I have plans to expand my business by adding additional units on my property. With multiple rental units, I could very well register it as an actual lodging business, collect state lodging tax, etc.
This likely isn’t an option for many as they live in cities & towns where current and future zoning laws may prohibit running a business like this in a residential area.
What do you think and do you have a contingency strategy? Or will you just pill the plug should a ban be instituted in your area?
