Good News! Compromise Tax Bill DOES NOT Tax Graduate Student Tuition Waivers

December 19, 2017
US Congressional leaders released the text and an explanation of the compromise tax legislation agreed to by the conference committee. In a major victory for the research community, the final version of the legislation does not include the proposal that was in the House bill to tax graduate student tuition waivers! Many thanks to everyone who responded to and shared the FASEB e-action alert on the tax bill. From the FASEB alert, over 22,000 emails were sent to Congress, reaching all 100 Senators and 414 House offices.
