Unrelated Business Income Tax (UBIT)

A link to a questionnaire about activities conducted by your area will be sent via email starting June 8, 2020. We request all responses to be recorded by June 19, 2020. The purpose of the questionnaire is to assist in fulfilling the University’s tax reporting requirements for the annual 990-T income tax return. Your assistance is vital to ensuring Boise State complies with IRS requirements for reporting unrelated business income. If you have further questions regarding UBIT related activities, please contact taxreporting@boisestate.edu.
