In order to process and issue payments to our vendors, the CSU is required to have certain forms completed and on file. These forms include a 204 Vendor Data Record Form and either a Withholding Exemption Certificate (Form 590) for California residents or a Nonresident Withholding Allocation Worksheet (Form 587).
If you have a California address, fill out a California Resident Packet (PDF). If you do not have a California address, fill out a California Non-resident Packet (PDF)
The flowchart (PDF) will help you determine which packet to fill out or visit the Secretary of State Website to verify if you are registered to do business in the State of California.
