Expense Management

Key Considerations Before Issuing Payment

Before submitting a student payment request, please review NYU’s Business Expense Policy to ensure that the payment is compliant with university policy.

In addition, please review the following tax reporting guidance:

  • Reimbursements for US citizens/permanent residents carry no tax reporting responsibilities so long as they are for valid NYU business purposes and submitted within 60 days.
  • US citizens/permanent residents being paid for brief work must include payment on their W-2.
  • Undergraduate US citizens/permanent residents not on NYU’s payroll will be issued a 1099 if they receive payments greater than $600 in a calendar year.
  • Non-resident aliens receiving payments must be entered in GLACIER, a tax treaty evaluation database for non-resident aliens, except for reimbursements so long as they are submitted within 60 days and are for valid NYU business purposes. Tax treaty with home country determines taxability and whether 1042-S and/or W-2 will be issued at year end.
