All stipends received are potentially taxable; ultimate taxability depends on individual taxpayer circumstances. You will NOT receive a 1099, W-2, or any other tax form from Vanderbilt University regarding stipends you have received while participating in the program.
Stipends are scheduled to be paid every two weeks. Taxes are NOT withheld from your stipend payments. It is your responsibility to keep track of any stipend payments you receive relative to tax filing. You are not required to have documentation of stipend payments from Vanderbilt University to include appropriate taxable amounts on your tax return. If you have any questions regarding the taxability of any payment you have received, or have questions regarding particular circumstances that may apply to you, please contact your tax counsel, accountant, or the IRS help line.
