To ensure that agreements for research and other sponsored projects are reviewed for potential tax consequences.
May 2020Responsible Office
It is the policy of the University that sponsored agreements and related funding will be in compliance with applicable requirements of the Internal Revenue Service Rev. Proc. 2007-47 and other tax regulations.
Under certain circumstances the IRS may view certain arrangements between the University and a for-profit entity as inappropriate private business use if the activities are housed in facilities or using assets financed with tax exempt bonds.
Agreements for which Penn Center for Innovation and Office of Clinical Research are responsible and designated by the Tax Office with funding from corporate (for-profit) entities will be reviewed to determine if the activity meets the conditions set forth by the IRS such that the IRS will not deem the conduct to be inappropriate private use. The Penn Center for Innovation and Office of Clinical Research will forward designated agreements to the University Tax office for review and further action.
