I guess It depends; in some companies, after a certain years of employment, all of an employee's children who apply for undergraduate admission and who can meet the academic requirements receive a tuition waiver.In general, ERs get tax write-offs for providing educational benefits to their EEs.Up to $5,250 of educational benefits given to each EE can be omitted from their wage earning history. This means that the EE will not have to pay federal income tax on the educational benefit. Furthermore, neither the EE nor the company will have to pay Medicare and Social Security taxes on the amount of tuition reimbursement. Federal and state unemployment taxes are also not required on the amount of the benefit given to each EE. For reimbursements that exceed $5,250 per EE, the company must include the excess on EE’s W-2 form, which ultimately increases the amount of income an EE reports on a tax return.So I guess you can lk to the ER for more accurate info in detail.
