Tax exemption

IMPORTANT: The state of Florida has a new process for claiming the tax exemption. The following steps will help you navigate Florida’s process as efficiently as possible; we also highly recommend you begin the process before the conference. If you already have a Florida-granted certificate of exemption, you may use a copy of your existing certificate, which is valid for 5 years.

To claim your state of Florida tax exemption:

  1. Download the Florida application for a certificate of exemption, then complete and mail the form (it cannot be emailed, faxed, or sent through other electronic means) to:

    Account Management-Exemptions

     Florida Department of Revenue
     PO Box 6480
     Tallahassee FL 32314-6480
  2. Once Florida receives your completed form, within three weeks they will approve your tax exemption and mail you a certificate of exemption (Florida cannot send it via electronic means).

    NOTE: While Florida cannot guarantee your certificate will arrive in time for the conference, hotel management has assured us they will quickly credit your taxes post-conference.
  3. Bring a copy of the Florida certificate of exemption to the hotel when you check in and they will input your exemption and credit your taxes.

    NOTE: Keep a copy of your certificate, which is valid for 5 years.
  4. We’ve been advised that you must pay your hotel bill with your credit union credit card. Otherwise, the hotel requires 10 days to process a credit union check.

Download the Florida application for a certificate of exemption.

In addition, you can download the NCUA tax exemption form.

Health & Safety Guidelines

Your Safety is of Utmost Importance - COVID-19 Event Protocols:

  • We ask that all attendees comply with applicable requirements imposed by federal, state, or local health authorities.
  • The CDC recently recommended that masks be worn indoors again when infection rates reach a “substantial” level or higher.  If this is the case in the local area during the conference, NAFCU will require a mask for all attendees at indoor events when not actively eating or drinking. Should you forget a mask, we will have them available at registration. We will continue to actively monitor this and provide updates if guidance changes.
  • Please be respectful of others and allow for social distancing. 
  • The session rooms have been set to ensure a comfortable and the safest distance possible between attendees. Please do not add chairs or additional attendees to any table beyond the number they are set for. 
  • Please do not attend the event if feeling ill or had recent COVID-19 exposure. Contact us at info@nafcu.org you need to change or cancel your registration for any reason. 
  • Your safety is our first priority and we continue to monitor any changes to guidelines that would impact attendance to the in-person event. Thank you for your compliance with these critical safety measures.
