Over three years ago, two local Portland Airbnb hosts started a conversation with City Hall about how to make it easier to share the home in which they live. The resulting legislation made Portland the first city in the world to pass home sharing regulations.
Today, Airbnb collects and remits taxes on behalf of our hosts. This last year alone, we helped generate $128.5 million in economic activity and supported 1,900 jobs across Portland’s many neighborhoods and small businesses. We continue to work with the city to promote responsible hosting and to make it possible for every Portlander to share the home in which they live.
