              do not have to be withheld from the payment. A request to the Controller’s
              Office for a W-9 would be appropriate.

              A department purchases supplies/services from a company. The company
              requests a tax exemption number in order to avoid charging taxes on the
              invoice. This would NOT be an appropriate request for W-9.

   •   Departments and/or employees of UCSF should never establish and/or change a tax
       identification number. The authority to establish and/or change the tax identification
       number rests with the University of California, Office of the President.

Please contact Jeffrey Yepsen to discuss the particular situation in your department if you
believe your department may need to establish a separate tax identification number.

Please note the tax identification number is NOT a sales and use tax exemption. If you are
making a purchase and have a question on sales and use tax please contact Lihua Gu.
