Excellent. More measures to get the illegal hosts out of the way.


I believe the primary purpose is to collect more taxes. Property taxes.

Just because you believe that, doesn’t make it true. The article makes it quite clear the policies are aimed at identifying hosts breaking local Covid restrictions as the primary purpose @Skai

And the hosts breaking the Covid restrictions are probably breaking other rules & requirements as well.

The article refers to wanting to ensure that businesses are ‘properly taxed’. This will include bed tax and any applicable local taxes. It could also weed out any people who are not paying income tax on the revenue they receive from Airbnb plus those who don’t have the proper licences and insurance. A good thing.
