Tax Reform

We are pleased to share that the final form of new tax legislation signed into law on December 22, 2017 preserved education benefits for our employees and graduate students. We are still assessing the other components of the legislation and expect clarification on certain aspects as new regulations are written.  
Please note the IRS has yet to release any guidance on changing federal tax withholdings. A communication will be sent to employees in advance of enacting any withholding changes.
