I will be putting my primary residence on Airbnb for 3 months while I'm out of the country for work. I want to purchase several items (soaps, paper goods, additional towels, air mattresses, etc) for use by those who use the Airbnb. Are these purchases considered to be a tax deductible expense?
It's questionable whether the IRS would classify this as a 'hobby' instead of a trade or business as its not continuous. Deductions might be limited.
A good question for your CPA.
