Pitt Community Update on U.S. Tax Reform Bill
Following the passage of the Senate tax-reform bill on Dec. 2, lawmakers must get to work reconciling the Senate bill with the House bill.
The University of Pittsburgh strongly opposes these provisions, which propose to:
- eliminate the deduction of interest on student loans;
- tax graduate student tuition waivers;
- tax tuition assistance for employees and dependents; and
- tax certain university endowments.
These prospective changes are detrimental to our students, faculty, staff and their families. In addition, they have the potential to destabilize Pitt’s world-class research program.
Leaders from throughout the higher education community—including at Pitt—have voiced their concerns to Congress.
And there’s still time to make your voice heard on this important issue.
