Other Clothing

1.       Department will follow the procedures previously noted.

2.       The Business Office will send the list of employees who receive items of Other Clothing that cost more than $15 per item to HRS to be included as a taxable fringe benefit to the employee(s) receiving the items.  Note that Other Clothing can only be paid from Foundation funds.

3.       The department may request a review to determine if the Other Clothing items qualify as Business Attire (not a taxable fringe benefit).  To initiate a review, PRIOR TO SENDING the payment request to the Business Office, the department completes a "Determination of Taxability Form" and submits to HRS with pertinent information.  Upon completion of the review, HRS will notify the department of the decision and forward all documents to the Business Office.
