If you pay for a hotel in advance while out of state... do you avoid paying tax rather than if you paid while there?

Random stupid question of the day

Simply put, NO. You're still staying at the hotel, and must pay the tax for that city/state you are sleeping in.

yes taxes but

NEGOTIATE, LOTS of empty rooms of late..

start at 30% below offered rate and see what happens...

All the transactions stay within the state, nothing is interstate ie. nothing is shipped to you.

If you paid for a room and they delivered it on a truck then you wouldn't have to pay.

Well, it's for a run I am doing and they already have special rates for the runners since the hotel is literally located right by the starting line. Don't think I can negotiate with that...
