Connecticut lawmakers are working through two proposed bills tied to student loan repayment assistance.
This new legislation would allow employers to provide student loan repayment programs to employees as non-taxable compensation.
As JD Supra explains:
“An employer could make student loan repayments on behalf of qualified employees (those who work at least 35 hours per week, are Connecticut residents and are not owners, members or partners of the employer) and claim a tax credit for those repayments, against their Corporation Business Tax or Insurance Premium Tax.”
