Tax Reporting & Compliance

Ensuring compliance and minimizing liability.

The mission of the UC Davis Tax Reporting & Compliance unit is to minimize the university's tax liability and ensure compliance with institutional tax withholding and reporting obligations.

We consult with campus personnel and affiliates to resolve tax issues specific to departmental needs and manage audits by external tax authorities. Our team also serves as an internal tax advisor to central administrative units such as Accounts Payable, Accounting Services, Payroll, Purchasing, and Student Business Services.
