Looking to save a few dollars on conference trips? Next time you travel on state business, be sure to ask the hotel front desk if they will waive the city tax since you’re a state employee. Some hotels honor this and some do not, but it’s always worth asking. Provide the hotel with a signed copy of the attached tax waiver and show your faculty ID. In some cases, hotels may honor the tax waiver as long as you sign their in-house form. For hotels that honor the discount, it will save you around 10-20%.
