HOT Tax Request Form -

Uvalde Area Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center

The HOT Tax Request Form is a comprehensive tool provided by the Uvalde Area Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center to streamline and facilitate the process of submitting Hotel Occupancy Tax (HOT) requests. Designed to serve the Uvalde community and promote local tourism, this form acts as a gateway for individuals, businesses, and organizations seeking financial support for qualifying projects and events.

The Uvalde Area Chamber of Commerce recognizes the importance of HOT funds in bolstering the growth and development of the local tourism industry. With this in mind, the HOT Tax Request Form simplifies the application process by gathering essential information and ensuring that all necessary details are provided to evaluate each request effectively.

This user-friendly form guides applicants through a series of sections, including general information, project/event details, funding requirements, and supporting documentation. Applicants are prompted to provide a clear description of their proposed project or event, its objectives, expected outcomes, and how it aligns with the mission of the Uvalde Area Chamber of Commerce in promoting tourism, economic vitality, and community engagement.
