“We just automatically assess the tax to the guest and we remit it to the local government, and what this does is makes the process easy for the local host,” Breit said.

Madison also gets a room tax through Airbnb. Breit said the company has similar agreements with 275 governments, including 21 states.

Earlier this year, Madison became the first city in the state to work with Airbnb to collect taxes.
