On this week's 'Asking for a friend' we have a woman's friend dealing with wanting to rent out her spare room on airbnb.

This question came in from melissa, Asking for a Friend:

Hey Billy and Charene, my friend wants to rent her spare room on airbnb but is worried about her safety but mainly as to how people have dealt with the taxes ( Idaho has occupancy tax). Also she doesn't own her home, are there issues with that in the state of Idaho... Asking for a friend.

Has anyone rented a spare room here on Airbnb ? We had some folks in the Mix nation.

Some folks have talked about there being options. It does vary from state to state, so it's important to check those laws. Check out nolo.com.
