How are you today?
Section 127 allows employers to provide up to $5,250 per year tax free to an employee for their education.
However, spouses and dependents are not covered under this provision.
If the amount is deemed a scholarship, it can be excluded under section 117 (a)
But, if the employer is simply paying for dependent educational expenses, the amounts are taxable and included in the income of the employee of the company.
