🐟 on H1B.. is it okay to rent out the apartment through Airbnb? Has anyone tried it? How does it work for taxes?

Yes, you can so long as you don’t make a profit (income) through that. This is of course easier to do for rental properties vs mortgage.

Wouldn't Air BnB income and profit be fine as it is not considered employment income ? Just like being on an H1B doesn't prevent you from investing in US securities and making a profit.. trying to understand if there's any other legal issue in play here

SC1 - investments in the market are considered to be passive vs. in Airbnb you are actively managing the business of renting apartments

Thinking of moving to PA in 1-3 years where we have friends & family. Do you recommend renting out our home? Or sell it for nest egg after 2 yr mark to avoid capital gains tax & potentially just before the real estate peak (maybe 2025 if 18 year cycle+2007)? Husband wants to rent it, I want to sell.

I contribute 20% to my pre tax (employer matches up to 6%) and 5% in my Roth 401k and 10% in my ESPP.
