Some or all of the benefits received under the tuition waiver program may be considered a taxable benefit. In general, graduate coursework and coursework for domestic partners and dependents of domestic partners will increase the amount of taxable income for the year. Tuition remission benefits may be subject to federal, state and FICA taxes. As these regulations change frequently, employees are encouraged to refer to current Internal Revenue Service regulations and consult with a tax adviser for more details. Employees are fully responsible for any tax liability incurred as a result of these benefits being treated as taxable income. If this benefit is taxable, Northeastern will withhold taxes from an employee's compensation. If necessary, the university may send a bill to a former employee for the tax amount due if the full tax withholding was not collected during the period of active employment. Any taxable benefit that was not withheld during employment will be included as psrt of earnings on an employee's W-2. For more details on the taxation of tuition benefits, please click here.
