Tax Reform: Higher Education Has Wins and Losses Under Final Law

Tuesday, March 27, 2018 1:00 PM ET


The swift passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act at the end of 2017 marked the first significant rewrite of the tax code in over 30 years. The sweeping legislation affects virtually every U.S. business, individual and not-for-profit organization—institutions of higher education experienced some wins and losses under the final legislation.
In this session, NACUBO has assembled a diverse panel of higher education tax advisors and industry professionals for an interesting and informative dialogue regarding the practical considerations of the tax reform legislation. The panel will discuss which provisions may have the most significant impact on the industry, how the industry is moving forward when tax planning is critical but IRS guidance is scarce, and practical considerations for institutions of higher education in the short term and in the long term. You will not want to miss this informative session!


After participating in this program you will be able to:

  • Recognize the significant provisions of the final tax reform law that affect institutions of higher education (including provisions related to executive compensation, large endowments, unrelated business income, tax-exempt bonds, and others).
  • Understand the effects of tax reform that impact employees, students/alumni, and donors.
  • Consider tax-planning strategies to mitigate any adverse impact of tax reform.
