Though the University is exempt from federal and state income taxes on revenue from activities related primarily to education and secondarily, research, the University is subject to reporting as an employer and vendor to the Internal Revenue Service and various other taxing authorities.
The tax function is responsible for tax reporting and compliance in the areas of sales tax, real estate tax, unrelated business income tax, employment tax withholding/reporting, and income tax withholding/reporting.
