About the Tax Department

The University Tax Department is part of the Controller’s Office. Our objective is to ensure that the university complies with federal and state tax laws and regulations through:

  • Preparing and filing the university's federal, state and local tax returns, including Forms 990, 990-T, and 5500s and sales and use tax returns
  • Compliance with the tax laws of Puerto Rico, including the sales and use tax and income tax withholding on vendor goods/services
  • Reviewing agreements for unrelated business income (UBI) and private business use (PBU) reporting;
  • Responding to the university community tax questions, conducting research as needed and contributing to policies and procedures on a variety of topics, including:
    • Tax withholding for non-resident aliens
    • Worker classification
    • Qualified sponsorships
    • Employee tuition waivers
  • Following federal and state tax law changes, determining the impact to the university and communicating those changes to executive management and impacted departments
