New in the Knowledge Centre: Tax Resources Notes

CAUBO has retained KPMG to develop a series of interpretive notes covering key university-specific issues in the areas of income tax and sales tax (GST/HST/QST).

Three new notes have been added online for CAUBO members and can be accessed below.

These new notes cover the following topics:

  1. Section 211 (PDF)
  2. International Tax Issues (PDF)
  3. Donations to Universities (PDF)

You can view the previous tax notes here.

As part of the agreement, in addition to the development of the tax notes, a tax hotline is also available for CAUBO members to communicate with KPMG Indirect Tax and Income Tax practitioners located across Canada regarding questions about university-specific tax issues.

The hotline, which can be accessed free of charge for CAUBO members, is available by email at or by phone at 1-800-663-1280. By phone, please ask for Jennifer Boychuk, Raj Sharma.

If you have questions or feedback about the tax resources, please contact Elizabeth Taylor at
