Rome, Cartersville among Georgia cities suing Airbnb

They say the company isn't paying its fair share of taxes.

Four Georgia communities say that Airbnb isn't paying its fair share of taxes.

In a federal lawsuit filed last Friday, the three cities and one county are seeking class-action status to include communities throughout the state as plaintiffs. 

They say the allegations in the lawsuit affect more than 100 Georgia counties and hundreds of municipalities. 

The suit was filed by lawyers representing Rome, Cartersville, Tybee Island and Hart County. It would be up to a judge to decide whether to allow the litigation to proceed as a class-action suit. 

Airbnb did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Monday.
