The State of New Hampshire, Department of Revenue Administration has recently determined that the USNH is exempt from paying the Meals and Rentals tax when renting a vehicle in NH (reference State of New Hampshire Rev. Rule 702.10). The USNH contracted vendors (Enterprise, Merchants, and U-Save) have been notified and have stopped charging the tax for vehicle rentals. The exemption from tax applies to vehicles rented for USNH business purposes and paid for using a USNH PCard or purchase order. Accordingly, if you notice a tax charge on future rental agreements/invoices, you are advised to work directly with the rental company to have the charge removed or a credit memo issued. If you have PCard holders that are travel enabled, please make sure they are aware of this issue.
Note: rentals paid for by an employee and later reimbursed are not tax exempt.
The UNH/USNH Purchasing Office and USNH Tax Office are coordinating an effort to request refunds for the campuses in cases where significant taxes may have been paid in the past. Please feel free to contact your BSC or campus Purchasing office if you have any questions or concerns in this regard.
