Overview: Information for Public Inspection
In accordance with IRS regulations, Stanford makes its most recent Tax Returns available for public inspection upon request.
Stanford is not required to make publicly available its application for tax exempt status. While IRS regulations require that certain entities that qualified for tax exempt status after August 15, 1987 make publicly available its application for tax exempt status, Stanford is exempt from this disclosure requirement because Stanford qualified for tax exempt status before this date.
A copy of Stanford University's affirmation letter from the IRS confirming the University's 501(c)(3) status is available online.
