As home sharing grows, Massachusetts benefits. Airbnb is bringing more visitors to the state who are seeking authentic, affordable stays — from the Cape and Islands to Boston and the Berkshires — and bringing local hosts extra income to help pay their bills, rent or mortgage.

Airbnb is committed to working with local lawmakers to craft fair, clear home sharing rules, including new laws that enable Airbnb to collect and remit hotel taxes and inject revenue into the Commonwealth.
