Tax Exemptions for Qualified Organizations

Certain organizations can apply to our office for exemption from franchise tax, from sales taxes on purchases necessary to the organization's exempt purpose, or from hotel tax when traveling on behalf of the exempt organization. Some nonprofit organizations may also be eligible for property tax exemptions. Not all organizations qualify for exemption in every category.

Farmers and ranchers are not exempt organizations, but some purchases that farmers and ranchers make may be exempt from certain taxes. Learn more.

To find out whether your organization is already classified as exempt, search the Comptroller's database. Our Guidelines to Texas Tax Exemptions has additional exemption categories and requirements.
