Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Getting there is easy, thanks to three international airports within a short drive. But once you're in Fort Lauderdale, it's hard to leave. That's what happens when you experience 23 miles of sun-kissed beaches, vibrant shopping on Las Olas Boulevard, and even gondola rides on the city's canals.

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.

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).
  3. Upon receiving your Florida certificate of exemption, scan and email it to Elizabeth, Elizabeth.ronnan@westinftlauderdalebeach.com at The Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort. Elizabeth will quickly 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.
