If we are a non-profit agency or are tax exempt, how do we get our tax exempt?

TAX EXEMPTION: All guests who are tax exempt will need to bring their own New York City and state tax exemption forms fully signed. In addition to providing the tax exemption documents, the tax-exempt organization must pay for the stay in order for it to be tax exempt. This can either be prepaid with the organization’s credit card (CC authorization form) at least 14 days prior to check-in. We would then apply payment for the room charge and set up the tax exemption in the hotel system so taxes do not run.
If the stay is not prepaid and guest claims tax exemption at check-in, they need to present the tax exemption documents and the exempt organization’s CC that belongs to the guest on arrival.
If the guest paid on their own without a tax exempt form or pre-payment on arrival, then the guests have a 90 day window after check-out to present proof of tax exemption and payment from the organization (CC authorization form). Once we receive the valid ST-129 New York state form, we will refund the taxes charged in full.
