Missouri Sales and Use Tax Exemption

***Misuse of the University’s sales tax exemption to evade taxes, for which you are personally liable, is strictly prohibited and may result in discipline up to and including termination, as well as substantial penalties under state law.***

In-State Travel - University of Missouri employees who purchase goods and services from Missouri hotels and/or motels solely for University purposes, and in conformity with University travel regulations, may request that Missouri and local sales taxes not be added to their bill. At the time of check-in, the employee should present to the hotel/motel management:

(1) a copy of the Missouri Sales and Use Tax Exemption Certificate, and,

(2) their University identification card.

This exemption is most likely to be granted if the employee is using the University of Missouri Corporate Credit Card.

Tax Exempt requests for Out of State travel - Some states offer reciprocal tax exemption for University business.  You can find a list of those states and what is needed to substantiate the exemption here
