Frequently Asked Questions

Is it taxable income if my employer pays my tuition?

As a way to retain employees, many employers offer fringe benefits, including educational assistance in the form of tuition and educational expense reimbursements. If your employer pays your tuition, you cannot deduct the amount paid when preparing your income taxes.The amount that you are reimbursed does not count as taxable income if it meets the qualifications under IRS guidelines.

Is my tuition remission benefit considered taxable income?

Graduate tuition remission becomes taxable when the benefit is received, which is at the beginning of each course taken. Therefore, a taxable event isn't triggered until you start the class/course and no additional income can be reported until that occurs.

Is tuition reimbursement considered income?

That said, all funding over the magic number are considered to be taxable income by the IRS. This means that tuition reimbursement in excess of this amount cannot be deducted and must be declared as income. There's a lot of work that goes into making sure you are on the up-and-up with the IRS regarding your education benefits programs.

Are tuition payments tax deductible?
