This notice is to make employees aware that the University is updating its enforcement of the IRS Accountable Plan effective Jan. 1, 2024. An accountable plan allows an employer to reimburse employees on a nontaxable basis when certain requirements are met.

Employees will need to substantiate business expenses within 60 days or amounts may be taxable and reported on Form W-2. No reimbursements will be granted if submission is more than 180 days after expense is incurred. Reimbursements older than 180 days must be submitted prior to Jan. 1, 2024 to receive consideration.

Please review the policy 108 – University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Policy on IRS Accountable Plan and procedure 108.1 – University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Procedure on Accountable Plan – Reimbursements for more details. This policy applies regardless of funding source or GL Business Unit.
