One year ago, Airbnb began collecting and remitting taxes on behalf of our hosts and guests in the State of Washington.
Today, we are pleased to share we have collected more than $7.6m in taxes on behalf of our hosts and guests around the state.
Home sharing makes it possible for thousands of families in Washington to pay their bills, stay in their homes, and make ends meet. In the last year alone, the platform has empowered some 9,300 hosts to welcome over 610,000 guest arrivals to the State.
Today, we’re sharing more information about our community in Washington, as well as some of the most popular cities in the state.
