Airbnb tax (12:34 pm Nov 24)
The Airbnb flat tax is excessive. It would be much more reasonable to set the tax as a percentage of the nightly rate. For example, in the winter months airbnbs in Seattle are commonly available at rates as low as $40/night. The $14/night constitutes a 30% tax. Not reasonable.
