Tax Compliance

Tax Compliance's mission is to ensure University compliance with all federal, state, and international tax laws by developing institutional tax policies and providing guidance to University operational units. Our goals are to protect the tax-exempt status of the University, to promote institutional compliance with tax laws, and to assist University personnel in planning and structuring future transactions.



As a result of legislation enacted during the 2019 General Assembly session, sellers located outside of Virginia with sales into the Commonwealth totaling more than $100,000 annually or involving 200 or more transactions to Virginia customers must begin collecting the Virginia Retail Sales and Use Tax starting July 1, 2019.  Out-of-state vendors needing a Virginia Sales and Use Tax Exemption Form (ST-12 or CT-10) should contact Procurement and Supplier Diversity Services at 434-924-4212.  See the Virginia Tax website for more details.

University units that sell physical products into foreign states must enter their sales information on our new State Sales Tax page.
