Local News: A service of Reid Health

(Richmond, IN)--AirBnB is an online site where private homeowners offer a room or home overnight to visitors…much like a hotel.  It’s not prevalent in Richmond – at least not yet.  There are only about 20 homes available locally on any given night.  Still, the Wayne County Area Chamber of Commerce issued a position statement Tuesday saying that they believe AirBnB’s should be treated like any other hotel in terms of taxes and regulations.  A bill addressing that issue is working its way through the Indiana Statehouse.
