Taxes incorrectly withdrawn for City

The City of Portland Maine has a tax on short term rentals, which are shorter than 30 days. We have a 60-day reservation this week and the tenant was charged $590 in -occupancy tax- . Airbnb sends this directly to the City. Is there a way to set up a long term rentals so this does not happen?
Is my best course of action through Airbnb (which is swamp now) or to approach the City?

Thank you!

Can’t do you any harm to contact your city @Ottersmom
