Due to changes resulting from the Tax Reform Act of 1986, scholarship funds no longer are considered exempt from income tax for recipients. If the funds are used only for tuition and books at an accredited technical or vocational program, the recipient is not liable for additional income tax.

Under any other circumstances, the scholarship is treated as income to the recipient. In an employee benefit tuition reimbursement program, the funds are treated as taxable income.

Due to changes resulting from the Tax Reform Act of 1986, any funds received from the SBL Fayette County Hospital Auxiliary will be paid directly to your educational institution.
