University Affiliated Organizations

Tax Exempt Status

Policy Location: Finance Committee Minutes, June 2, 1978

Title: Report on University Affiliated Organizations

Text: The Finance Committee "determined that it had no objection" to the following procedure.

Attachment: [In part] During recent months the University has become increasingly concerned about the use by student organizations of the University's tax exempt status for income tax, charitable gift, and state sales tax purposes. Several recent audits of local businesses by the State Division of Taxation indicate that many student groups and organizations rely on their unofficial relationship with the University of Virginia as a basis of exemption from the state sales tax. Contributors to such groups and organizations treat their gifts as tax-deductible, even though they are not made payable to the University of Virginia. Various organizations have sponsored activities which involve the sale of goods and services without ever acquiring the necessary licenses, filing the required tax forms, or paying income tax. These problems have necessitated that the University establish a policy regarding which groups and organizations may continue to use their relationship to the University as a basis for tax exempt status. As of July 1, 1978 only those student groups and organizations which have become University Affiliated Organizations (UAO) will be included on the University's official list of organizations permitted to rely upon the University of Virginia's tax exempt status. No separately incorporated organization will be eligible to qualify as a University Affiliated Organization...

Student organizations may: qualify provided such organizations receive student activity fund support and also meet... educational purpose criterion.... This memorandum does not change the requirements or procedures for the allocation of student fee funds. Consequently, student activity fund allocations will continue to be handled in the same manner as in the past.

Any unincorporated student group or organization which feels that it meets these requirements may apply to become a UAO by submitting a request to the University Comptroller on the appropriate form. These forms may be obtained at the Office of the University Comptroller or at Garrett Hall. A copy of the group's constitution, and a copy of its most recently approved itemized annual budget should be attached with the request. If the University Comptroller determines that the group meets the requirements mentioned above, a Memorandum of Understanding will be sent to the group to be reviewed and accepted. The group will be included on the University's official list of University Affiliated Organizations upon receipt by the University Comptroller of the executed Memorandum.

Student groups which are included on the University's official list of University Affiliated Organizations will be required to confirm their status annually and to provide an itemized annual budget and the names and local addresses of all the new constitutional officers. Details pertaining to the renewal procedure will be provided to University Affiliated Organizations in March of each year beginning in 1979.

Notes: Category B - This relationship with student organizations is no longer used. The University now has a contractual relationship with student groups which is reflected in the Contracted Independent Organization (CIO) agreement.
