Airbnb / Short Term Rental Regulation Summary

In 2016, Anchorage officials voted unanimously to require “Hosting Platforms” like Airbnb to collect and remit the city’s 12% room tax. It’s part of the city’s effort to regulate Short-Term Rentals of all kinds so long as the length of the stay is 30 days or less. Operators who rent their properties exclusively on Airbnb don’t need to do much more, but everyone else – including Hosting Platforms, large operators, and small operators – must officially register their business with the Treasury Department (PDF).
