Members of Congress on both sides of the aisle are trying to pass legislation that would make company payments to employees’ student debt tax-free. But we can’t do it without your help.

IT'S TIME TO ACT

Tell Congress: Don't Tax My Benefits.

You went to school. You got a job. You did everything right. Now, you can make it easier for your company to help you pay off that debt. The Employer Participation in Repayment Act will help your company pay off your student loans at no cost to you, by allowing your company to make tax-free payments towards your student debt. This is how many other benefits are treated.

Sign the petition below to tell Congress: Don’t tax my benefits. We will hand-deliver your signature to your member of Congress this summer.

Together, we can help pay off the nation’s $1.5 trillion in student loan debt. Let’s be #DebtFreeTaxFree.

IT'S TIME TO ACT

"I love my nursing profession, but struggle to pay for the education that got me here. I dream of being debt free some day and think this will be a huge help. I know I am not the only one...please pass this bill!"

About student loan benefits

The price of employment

Nearly a third of employers have increased their educational requirements over the last five years. These skills can come at a steep cost: 72% of the workforce has taken out student loans to fund their education. Now, we spend the better part of our careers paying off the debt required to get the job.

Your employer wants to help

Companies understand this burden. In fact, 95% of human resources executives agree they should help their employees improve their financial wellness. But because anything your employer gives towards your student loans is taxed as income, much of their contribution goes to Uncle Sam instead of to your loan.

Taxed at your expense

Student loan employee benefits have proven to attract and retain employees. But currently, these benefits are a tax burden for the employee – and their employer. For many companies, it’s just too expensive to help you get out of debt.
