Taxes at Airbnb

Since 2022, I've been leading design on the newly established Tax Experience team. Our mission is to guide every host around the world to easily understand their tax requirements and accurately report their hosting income taxes to their local tax authority.

Since establishment we've been revamping all tax workflows into a single platform while complying with the new US (ARPA) and EU (DAC7) laws.


Launched new pricing tools to make it easier for hosts to preview what guests will pay, add a pet fee, and offer lower cleaning fees for short stays.

Led vision and strategy for listing management tool to help hosts intuitively manage and merchandise their listing. This includes reorganizing/restructuring all settings and improving navigation & discoverability.

Hotels at Airbnb
