Military taxes online The group must be defined under a reasonable classification set up by the employer. Military taxes online The classification must not discriminate in favor of owners, officers, or highly compensated employees. Military taxes online Payment for services. Military taxes online   Generally, you must include in income the part of any qualified tuition reduction that represents payment for teaching, research, or other services by the student required as a condition of receiving the qualified tuition reduction. Military taxes online This applies even if all candidates for a degree must perform the services to receive the degree. Military taxes online (See below for exceptions. Military taxes online ) Exceptions.
