					Filing Procedures


All departments within the University will report their monthly sales figures in an identical manner to the Corporate
Tax Office. This method will promote proper compliance with state and local sales tax laws.

Each department is responsible for keeping track of its gross sales, taxable sales and sales tax collected. At present,
each department has a different method of keeping track of these items (e.g., Quickbooks, cash register receipts and
handwritten paper receipts, etc.) Regardless of the method used, all departments within the University will be
responsible for reporting monthly sales and sales tax.


Information compiled by individual departments must be forwarded to the CTO on or before the 5 th day of each month.

Appendix 1
Gross sales, taxable sales and sales tax collected must be entered by object code into the attached “Monthly Sales-
Reconcilation to Ledger Worksheet”. Non-taxable sales will be calculated automatically once gross sales and taxable
sales have been entered. These totals must agree with Appendix 2 which is representation of a Arizona sales and use
tax return.
The total tax collected will populate into the second section of Appendix 1 under the "Monthly Worksheet" column.
Any necessary adjustments must be recorded in Object Code 2118 / Program Value 0101 including but not limited to:
· Adjustments for prior month return, refunds, or reclasses
· Any reclass for improperly booked sales tax (i.e. tax collected but booked improperly in revenue object code)
· Accrual of sales tax not collected to ensure that taxes inadvertently not collected from the customer are paid

Appendix 2
Taxable sales information must be entered by location in the "Input Information" section of the worksheet. The top
portion of the worksheet automatically calculates the sales tax due based on Appendix 1. Appendix 1 and 2 are the
underlying support for filed tax returns. However, all invoices and supporting documentation should be
maintained for 7 years for audits purposes.


Appendix 3
County use tax rates. Please note that these rates are subject to change. Contact the tax office if you need to verify the
current rates.


Appendix4
To the extent that a department begins selling any additional products or services during the month, the Corporate Tax
Office must be informed within two weeks of the introduction of the new item. A “New Product/Service Notification
Worksheet”, attached should be submitted, and should contain the following information:
(a) A description of the product,
(b) When the product was introduced,
(c) What is the expected customer base and
(d) The 26-digit account number for reporting the new revenue stream

Centers must collaborate with the Corporate Tax Office as soon as possible regarding the taxability of any additional
products or services but no later than two weeks prior to the sales of the new item(s).
