By law, some uses of the Tuition Assistance Benefit are taxed. Taxable tuition assistance will be subject to federal, state and FICA (Social Security and Medicare) taxes. Taxable employees can expect these taxes to be deducted from their paychecks one to two months after their CU campus of registration’s census deadline.
