Protect Higher Education in Tax Reform

December 12, 2017

Over the last few weeks, both the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives have passed their own versions of tax reform, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The two bills have key differences which must now be worked out in a conference committee. Congress aims to send a final version of the bill to the President for his signature before the end of 2017. For further background on the tax reform legislation, visit the American Council on Education (ACE) website

The higher education community, including the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU), has expressed concern about particular provisions in the legislation that would adversely affect University students and employees as well as charitable giving and higher education finance. As Congress considers how to reconcile the House and Senate versions of tax reform, The University of Scranton recommends advocacy utilizing guidance from ACE on the issues and encourages faculty, staff and students to share your stories about how these measures will impact you and your families.
