Letter to Senate Leaders Urging Swift Passage of the Kiddie Tax Scholarship Fix
On behalf of the American Council on Education and the undersigned higher education associations, Iam writing today to urge the Senate to swiftly correct a mistake made in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA) that has inadvertently caused harm to many low-and middle-income students who rely on scholarship aid to pay for their college education. The Senate now has before it two bills -H.R. 1994, the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement Act of 2019 (SECURE Act) and S. 1667, the Tax Relief for Student Success Act–which contain provisions intended to correct this mistake. The Senate should move forward to enact the legislative fix for this problem as soon as possible. Read the full letter here.
