SASFAA Webinar - Tax Reform: How it Affects Students, Parents, and Colleges


President Trump signed the bill formerly known as “The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” into law on December 22, 2017. The bill’s passage, universally acknowledged as the most sweeping change to tax code in decades, was greeted with a mixture of cheers and jeers from either sides of the political aisle. Looking beyond the politics, however, what does tax reform actually mean for higher education? What has changed? What hasn’t? And how do these changes to tax law affect students, parents, and the colleges that support them? This webinar will provide an overview of the education tax breaks and the aspects of tax reform most likely to impact higher education.
