Chancellor Spinelli Says Latest Tax Proposal Better for Graduate Students: Philadelphia Business Journal

Chancellor Stephen Spinelli Jr. said he is pleased that a proposal to tax graduate tuition waivers reportedly has been dropped from the compromise tax bill working its way through Congress, the Philadelphia Business Journal reported Dec. 14.

“At Thomas Jefferson University, half of our students are in graduate programs, and these students are going to make significant contributions throughout their careers,” Spinelli said. “We’re in the business of empowering these students to be leaders in their fields, so we are pleased that the compromise tax bill reportedly no longer calls for the taxation of graduate student tuition waivers. It is in the public interest to enable students to pursue graduate-level programs, not set up barriers to their doing so.”
