Certain lodging and meal expenses incurred while traveling on University business may be exempt from state sales tax in some states. (Please be advised that in many states and/or cities, the University is not exempt from hotel/motel room occupancy taxes even though the University may be exempt from sales taxes in that state.) Please print, keep on hand and use these certificates when traveling on University business.
Employee misuse of these certificates may result in severe disciplinary action up to and including termination.
