  27. Reminders • UBI is a complex topic with multiple criteria and possible exclusions, often requiring interpretation. • “Substance over form” - You may try to call income a qualified sponsorship, but if it has the characteristics of advertising, it likely is. • University Payroll & Tax Services is willing to help you determine if your activity might generate UBI.

  28. IRS Focus Areas • Continue to monitor: • Activities not “regularly carried on” • Lack of profit/profit motive – activities showing consistent losses for several years (UF is required to net these losses to zero until profit is made again.) • Dual-use Expense Allocations – need to recognize all funding sources and subsidies if you are calculating a UBI % to be applied to your expenses (IRS says that losses are being subsidized from somewhere!)

  29. Due Date Certifications, Financial Statements, and Supporting Schedules are due: October 9, 2013 (for FY2012-2013) Questions, comments or requests for a departmental UBI visit, contact: University Payroll and Tax Services (352) 392-1231
