Return of tax exemption cards

All tax exemption cards (both personal and mission) are the property of the U.S. Government and must be returned to OFM when they have expired, recalled, or when the individual’s employment or assignment with an embassy, consulate, or international organization has been terminated. Tax exemption cards of personnel who become permanent residents of the United States must also be returned to OFM.

Failure to return a tax exemption card as required is considered a violation of the Department of State regulations and may result in the temporary suspension of new card-issuance for the individual/mission.
