1099 forms addressed to UCSD

  • If you receive a UCSD-related 1099 form, send it to Financial Control, Mail Code 0953. These forms are usually sent in error, and Internal Controls & Accounting may need to follow up.

Background: Vendors/ payers do not need to send 1099 forms to UCSD. Vendors can request a Form W-9 that confirms UCSD's tax-exempt status.

In general, UCSD's income, regardless of the source, is not taxable by either the federal or state government. The small amount that is taxable won't be reported on a 1099-MISC. However, vendors do frequently send 1099 forms. They also mistakenly address UCSD 1099s to university employees (e.g., patient medical services might be reported as income to a UCSD physician.)
