Housing Tax Exemption Information for the Kalahari Resort and Convention Center
There have been questions regarding tax exempt status when booking rooms at the Kalahari Resort. Learn more about this issue by clicking here.
The verbiage off the Kalahari Resort and Convention Center site on this issue:
I am with a tax exempt organization. What is required for my stay to be tax exempt?
"There are several organizations, municipalities and governmental agencies that may be exempt from Wisconsin state and local taxes. The tax exempt laws of Wisconsin are dependent on several factors. If your stay is being paid or reimbursed by one of these entities, please click here and use this document as a guide to what is needed to exempt your stay from tax. The majority of exempt stays will require a State of Wisconsin S211 form to be filled out. For a copy of this form and/or an example letter documenting a traveler being reimbursed, please click here for an S211 and sample letter. Kalahari Resort encourages you to have all the documentation faxed or emailed to us in advance of your stay. We require all the appropriate forms and documentation in order for the tax to be waived. Taxes will be charged until these items are provided. Information can be faxed to 608-254-6116."
