Pending Legislation

AB 106
Increased income tax deduction for college

Full Description

(Wood) Expands the individual income tax deduction for college tuition expenses.

Referred to: Joint Committee on Tax Exemptions

UW System Position

SUPPORT: The exemption would encourage more savings for higher education. In tight fiscal times, the value of this tax credit approach must be weighed against direct appropriation of state grant funds for low income students.
