Airbnb hosts react to the Liberals’ crackdown on short term rentals
Ottawa has announced plans to curb income tax deductions for short term rental property owners as part of a push to get these properties back on the rental market. We asked several Airbnb hosts how they feel about this.
"Not letting me deduct the cost of my 'home is where the beach is' wall sign and hammock that no one has ever used is an absolute crime."
"Life just feels kinda meaningless if we're not constantly changing freshly fucked on sheets."
"Ok so if my cleaning fee is 100 dollars a night right now full time tenants will pay me $3,000.00 a month AND clean the house themselves?"
"Full time tenants will want to make the place their own instead of keeping my style of 'what if HGTV threw up everywhere.'"
"Unfortunately people who stay more than a few days are way more likely to find the hidden cameras I have set up all around the apartment."
"If I can only make $2,300.00 a month for my 500 square foot bedroom condo in downtown Toronto then I'll be financially ruined."
