  • Scholarship, Fellowship, or Grant Payments

Binghamton University will extend tax treaty benefits to those who are eligible under provisions of a tax treaty. The policy will be facilitated using the SUNY payroll system provided through the Office of the State Comptroller (OSC) payroll system. Binghamton University will utilize specialized tax treaty software in making eligibility decisions.

The Human Resources office is the point of contact for all questions. The International Tax Treaty Specialist will be responsible for counseling employees and scholarship recipients regarding potential eligibility for tax treaty benefits.
