Taxation Implications

Important: If you are a University of Miami benefits-eligible employee or a spouse/dependent of a University of Miami benefits-eligible employee, you must complete the Tuition Remission & Waiver Taxation Form for Graduate Courses. The University manages its tuition waiver plans in accordance with Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regulations. Tuition waivers are considered taxable income to University employees and are subject to federal income tax and FICA withholding in the calendar year the course is taken. University of Miami employees who have questions on tuition remission should contact HR-Total Rewards, your pay and benefits team, by completing the online inquiry form or calling 305-284-3004. Whether or not you are an UM employee, we recommend that you consult with your federal income tax preparer on any tax liability.
