University Tax Compliance

We work to keep NC State staff, faculty and administrators informed about applicable federal and state tax law.

The primary purpose of the Tax Compliance Department is to keep university business officers, staff and faculty, and administrators informed about tax laws and other laws that require university compliance.

It is our goal to ensure that the university is following all applicable state and federal regulations regarding internal and external parties. Key to that is providing accurate and helpful information to everyone who works at NC State.

Below, you’ll find extensive resources concerning tax compliance at NC State.


These guidelines, bulletins, and presentations are intended as general information only. Tax laws are often complex, open to interpretation, and contain exceptions and special cases; please consult with the university tax and compliance manager regarding the tax consequences of planned university transactions.
