Before signing an international contract

If you are signing a contract that is either being funded by a foreign organization or that includes any activity occurring outside of the U.S. it is important to consider any tax implications. While MIT is exempt from many taxes in the U.S., that is not necessarily the case if the funding, collaborator, or activity is not in the U.S.

There is contractural language available for Standard Research and Consortium agreements through the Office of Sponsored Programs (need deep link here). For any other agreement please contact Jodi Kessler with questions or to review tax implications.
