Zeppos: Don’t reform taxes on the backs of students

Tax reform legislation currently proposed by the U.S. House and Senate will undercut financial aid efforts at universities around the country, including Vanderbilt, while provisions to the House legislation will make it more expensive for students to pursue post-secondary education and eliminate a provision allowing universities to provide tax-free tuition reimbursements for dependents of employees, writes Chancellor Nicholas S. Zeppos in the Tennessean.
