New tax plan will hurt students

Posted by on in Gulf Policy

From American Federation of Teachers (AFT), "If the [proposed] Republican tax plan passes, it will not be possible for many graduate students across the country to afford their education. Their [Republican-led] bill will force them to pay hundreds of dollars more in taxes by treating tuition waivers - the tuition that is waived by universities as compensation for their work as teaching and research assistants - as taxable income, a tax bill they can’t afford on the salary of a graduate assistant."
