Prize Or Award
Contact Regulatory Accounting for specific guidance on completing a Fast Track payment request for a prize or award to be paid to a foreign recipient. Prizes or Awards to non-U S Citizens are not tax exempt regardless of tax treaties or other reasons. Tax must be withheld at the rate of 30%.
If the department would like to pay the tax on behalf of the recipient, the payment must be “grossed up” by dividing the net amount to be received by 0.70.
