Tax Problem

Mathews, John
March 1977
Education Digest;Mar1977, Vol. 42 Issue 7, p66
The article reports that Ford Administration tax officials passed on to their Democratic counterparts the issue of what to do about tuition benefits many colleges offer to the families of their employees. Some 28,000 students, it was estimated, get such benefits now, representing a total value of about $10 million, not much of a figure to go after when tax loopholes are being counted. Indications are that the Carter Administration, well aware of some 2,000 letters protesting the tax proposal, is determined to stay clear of the issue, too.
