Avoiding VAT at Hotel

Question:
Because of my Israeli citizenship I need to pay tax in a hotel.
am I able to show them my passport so they wont charge me tax
I want to be honest and believe that all money is from Hashem.
the issue is I will avoid staying at the hotel if I need to pay tax.
is this a valid claim or i should just pay the tax.

Thank you
Answer:

The fact that you would otherwise not patronize this hotel does not justify going and not paying the taxes required. So this would be no different than any other form of tax evasion.
