    Per IRS regulations, effective January 1, 2013 faculty and staff using University of Miami tuition remission benefits for graduate courses will be subject to taxation on the value of graduate tuition remission received each calendar year in excess of $5,250. Annual graduate tuition remission benefits exceeding $5,250 will be included in the employee’s gross income and taxed accordingly. By law, the University must collect taxes due from employees by the end of the calendar year in which the graduate courses are taken.

    Faculty and staff who expect to use graduate tuition remission benefits between January 1 and December 31, 2013 must complete and submit the Graduate Taxation Estimate Form to HR-Benefits via email at [email protected] or fax to 305-284-4568 as soon as possible in order for taxes to be distributed over a longer period of time during the calendar year. Please note that employees will be taxed on all graduate tuition remission received by dependents. The value of graduate tuition remission received by dependents will be allocated over the employees’ remaining pay periods in the calendar year.
