tax   /  Legal Entity Information and Form Links

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) certified the federal income tax exempt status of the Board of Trustees for the University of Alabama, a body corporate. The University of Alabama at Birmingham is a division of this corporate body. A letter from the IRS dated June 17, 1974 affirmed this classification. 

This letter is often referred to as a 501(c)(3) letter or IRS Determination Letter and may be requested by outside entities to confirm the federal income tax exempt status of UAB. 

UAB was issued a tax identification number (TIN) from the IRS. The number is 63-6005396. This number may also be referred to as an employer identification number (EIN). The UAB TIN may only be used for official UAB business activities. When using the UAB TIN, the official name must be used as well. The legal name associated with the TIN is University of Alabama at Birmingham. 

UAB vendors may request a copy of UAB's Form W-9 in order to satisfy the IRS requirement of Name/TIN matching. 

Entities associated with UAB (e.g. UAB Educational Foundation, UAB Health Services Foundation, UAB Health System, UAB Highlands Hospital, UAB Research Foundation, etc.) should be contacted directly for Form W-9 requests.
