Discussion: US taxation policy requires that tuition waivers over $5250/year
are taxable, for students who are not performing research or teaching duties for the

Teaching: For University tax purposes, teaching activities may include, but
are not limited to the following: providing or coordinating classroom and/or creative
instruction, including lab or discussion sessions; tutoring students; grading tests
and assignments; developing instructional materials; accompanying /coaching musical
