ACRL Opposes Graduate Student Tuition Waiver Tax Proposal

ACRL has signed on to two letters opposing a proposed tax on graduate student tuition waivers included in the tax reform bill recently passed by the U.S. House of Representatives. Subjecting tuition waivers to income tax would dramatically increase the tax burden of hundreds of thousands of students and potential impede future innovation in research and teaching. The letters, from the March for Science and the American Council of Learned Societies, call on Members of Congress to reject the proposed change and stand up for the future of American higher education.
