Do I need a Payee Data Record?

Individuals who receive payments from Chico State Enterprises (CSE) or the University Foundation (UF) must fill out a Payee Data Record before a payment is processed when the income is tax reportable.  Examples of reportable income include but are not limited to payments to vendors, independent contractors, guest speakers, performers, scholarships, prize and award recipients, and stipends.
