HelloCustomer

In the state of Missouri, Individuals who contract in advance for stays of 30 or more consecutive days in a hotel are considered to be permanent residents and there is no sales tax due on the room charges. If a contract was not signed in advance or if your husband did not indicate on his registration card that he intended to stay for 30 days or more, then sales tax would apply to his room charges. If you have a copy of such a contract, you should contact the home office of the hotel in question to request a refund of any sales tax paid.
