Office of Tax Compliance

The Office of Tax Compliance has a primary mission to ensure compliance with federal, state and local tax laws and regulations for Drexel University and its affiliates.

The Office of Tax Compliance prepares and files the University’s federal, state and local tax returns, including the annual IRS Form 990. The Office of Tax Compliance also reviews all requests for independent contractor classification, and ensures the correct tax withholding for nonresident alien individuals paid through the Payroll Office and Accounts Payable.

The Office of Tax Compliance provides limited information regarding taxes, including general tax information for nonresident alien students, faculty and professional staff. However, the Office of Tax Compliance does not provide personal income tax advice to students or employees. Individual tax matters are a concern between the individual and the Internal Revenue Service or state.
