According to numbers released by Airbnb, the company has about 3,600 hosts registered in Suffolk County and a comparatively lower 560 registered hosts in Nassau County, Newsday reported. Between May 25 and Sept. 3, 2018, the service had 81,700 guest arrivals across Long Island. All told, those visitors earned their hosts about $47 million, according Long Island Business News. That sum represents a 38 percent increase over the same period in 2017. Airbnb is still in talks about the collection of hotel taxes with officials in Nassau and Suffolk counties. In 2018, Suffolk Comptroller John Kennedy got about 1,000 hosts to pay the county’s 3 percent occupancy tax. A federal judge recently blocked a New York City law designed to crack down on Airbnb and other short-term rental sites. [LIBN]
