HOTEL OCCUPANCY TAX EXEMPTIONS Any individual or group receiving a hotel tax exemption must submit a Texas Hotel Occupancy Tax Exemption Certificate (which may be given to the guest by the hotel s front desk staff), or the hotel may be liable for not having collected the tax.

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES are exempt from state and local tax if traveling on official business. Contractors working for the federal government are not exempt. B. STATE GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES are exempt from state and local hotel occupancy taxes if they have been issued one of two types of exemption cards. One of these cards is a special State Hotel Exemption Photo ID Card. The other card does not have a photo ID, but states when presented with a photo identification card issued by a Texas Agency, the holder of this card is exempt from state, municipal, and county hotel occupancy tax, Tax Code Sec (d), or similar wording.

4 Texas State government employees who use either of the state Hotel Tax Exemption cards must submit a Texas Hotel Occupancy Tax Exemption Certificate, or the hotel may be held liable for not collecting the tax. Hotels are required to retain these certificates in order to verify legitimate exemptions when audited by a government agency. All other Texas State government employees, including those with educational organizations, must pay the hotel occupancy tax. If appropriate, the state and local governments will then reimburse the state employer through a separate process, in which the hotel is not involved. C. EDUCATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS including independent school districts, public or private elementary, secondary, college, universities, junior colleges, technical institutes, and medical or dental school of Texas and other states are required to pay City of Sherman Hotel Occupancy Tax. Sales tax exemption certificates can not be used for hotel tax exemption purposes. Some may be exempt from state hotel occupancy tax. Any individual or group receiving a hotel tax exemption from state tax must submit a Texas Hotel Occupancy Tax Exemption Certificate (which may be given to the guest by the hotel s front desk staff), or the hotel may be liable for not having collected the tax. D. RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS are exempt from state hotel occupancy tax but are required to pay City of Sherman Hotel Occupancy Tax. Some religious organizations have received a hotel exemption certificate from the Comptroller. Sales tax exemption certificates can not be used for hotel tax exemption purposes. Any religious organization receiving such exemption must present its letter of exemption from the Comptroller and submit to the hotel a Texas Hotel Occupancy Tax Exemption Certificate (which may be given to the guest by the hotel s front desk staff), or the hotel may be held liable for not collecting the tax. The hotel tax exemption for religious organizations is to be granted only to individuals employed by the religious organization unless the hotel bill for nonemployees is being paid directly by the religious organization. If the employee is being reimbursed by the religious organization, the employee may pay by personal check, credit card, or cash. E. CHARITABLE ORGANIZATIONS must pay City of Sherman Hotel occupancy taxes. In order for a charitable organization to be exempt from state hotel occupancy tax, it must first have received a letter of certification from the Comptroller of the State of Texas. Sales tax exemption certificates can not be used for hotel tax exemption purposes. Any charitable organization receiving such exemption must present its letter of exemption from the Comptroller and submit to the hotel a Texas Hotel Occupancy Tax Exemption Certificate (which may be given to the guest by the hotel s front desk staff), or the hotel may be held liable for not collecting the tax.
