Hawaii: Airbnb has acknowledged hosts not paying all taxes
07 Feb 2019

AP — A judge should compel Airbnb to hand over 10 years of receipts and other documents from its hosts to the state of Hawaii in part because the home-sharing platform has acknowledged that the hosts aren’t fully complying with state tax laws, a court filing said.

Hawaii’s attorney general has asked a judge to allow the state to subpoena Airbnb to help it find which hosts haven’t paid the state’s equivalent of hotel and sales taxes
.
The face-off follows disputes between Airbnb and local governments in other states.

In New York last month, a U.S. judge shelved a city law that would have required home-sharing platforms to reveal hosts’ names and other information.
