Does anyone have experience with their local governments and a similar act? Missouri has passed this, which protects AirBNB hosts from restrictive local laws as long as the hosts live on the property as well. I would guess that as long as we claim all income and pay taxes on it we would be protected?
We were specifically told by our inspector when we bought our house and talked about what our plans were with our “mother-in-law” apartment above the garage that as long as we did not set it up as a long-term, permanent residence for income we could let people stay up there short term, or of course our own family members could live there all they want.
I just was wondering if anyone had experience with this. I’ve always followed the law and yet also have the mind-set that if it’s my home and I’m willing to live with these people and pay the taxes, etc, it’s up to me as long as I’m not breaking noise ordinances, disturbing neighbors, etc.
Thanks for your thoughts!
