Title:Moving on up: How tuition tax breaks increasingly favor the upper middle-class
Organization:Education Sector
Short Description:Using Internal Revenue Service data collected by the College Board, this report takes a close look at the distribution of the tuition tax breaks from 1999 to 2009, the latest year for which the data is available. The following charts show how the tuition tax break programs have evolved over time to provide a greater and greater share of the benefits to higher-income families.
Annotation:Policymakers have a self-serving reason for pushing these tuition tax break expenditures: they allow them to provide federal subsidies to upper-middle income tax filers who are most likely to votee. At a time when the budget axe is falling on the Pell Grant program, providing billions of dollars in tax benefits to upper-middle income families who would send their children to college without the help is a luxury that the government can no longer afford. Using Internal Revenue Service data collected by the College Board, this report takes a close look at the distribution of the tuition tax breaks from 1999 to 2009, the latest year for which the data is available. The following charts show how the tuition tax break programs have evolved over time to provide a greater and greater share of the benefits to higher-income families.
