A nonprofit religious organization is exempt from franchise, sales and the state portion of hotel occupancy taxes if it is an organized group of people regularly meeting at a particular location with an established congregation for the primary purpose of holding, conducting and sponsoring religious worship services according to the rites of their sect.
Organizations that simply support and encourage religion as an incidental part of their overall purpose, or that further religious work or teach their membership religious understanding, will not qualify for exempt status under this category.
To apply for exemption, complete AP-209 and provide all required documentation as listed in the application. If the organization is unincorporated, include a copy of the organization’s governing document, such as the bylaws or constitution. The document must show that the organization is nonprofit. We will review the corporation’s formation documents on file with the Texas Secretary of State to verify that the corporation’s purpose is consistent with the requirements of this section. Non-Texas corporations must also include a copy of the corporation’s formation documents and a current Certificate of Existence issued by their state of incorporation.
