Senate Proposal Levies Same College Endowments Tax as House

November 22, 2017

The U.S. Senate’s proposed tax reform would levy the same tax to private college endowments as the House’s version. Both the Senate and the House are calling for a 1.4 percent tax on net investment income, which will impact about 70 colleges with endowments over $250,000 per student. The focus on endowments is part of Congress’ recent attempts on how endowments can help reduce the cost of attendance at colleges and universities.

More on the proposed college endowment tax is available on the Accounting Today website.
