Individuals DC Housing Accommodations Tax Exemption
The District of Columbia's Gross Sales Tax on transient occupancies includes very specific criteria for individuals and groups that need to be met to qualify for an exemption.
If you are not a GW academic year student, to qualify for an exemption you must:
- Enroll in a GW summer course or be enrolled as a full-time student at a college or university within the District of Columbia for the most current Spring or Fall Semesters.
- Email proof of enrollment to [email protected] after you have secured a summer housing reservation
- If you are a GW academic year student, an exemption to the Gross Sales Tax is already calculated as part of your summer housing reservation
All other individual guests are subject to pay the 15.95% Gross Sales Tax on transient occupancies.
