Please Note: Under the Internal Revenue Code 127, the value of tuition paid by the employer is taxable for graduate-level courses. The Internal Revenue Code also contains an exemption for this liability up to $5,250 per calendar year for employer provided non-job-related educational assistance. It is very important that your supervisor indicate on the ETP Form whether the classes you are taking are an extension of training in your current position. Undergraduate courses are exempt.
