Tennessee Sales and Use Taxes
Vanderbilt University is exempt from Tennessee sales tax for its purchases. However, the University is not exempt from charging, collecting and remitting Tennessee sales taxes on its sales of tangible property and certain services. University departments are responsible for the collection of sales taxes and timely reporting of the sales tax activity to the University Finance office. Upon receipt of the sales tax information, the University Finance office is responsible for reporting the sales activity to the State of Tennessee as well as remitting the sales taxes collected.
