Report your income from employee tuition reimbursement on a W-2 depending on the amount of provided educational assistance. Do not include the benefits with an employee’s wages, tips, and other compensation in Box 1 of a W-2 form if the assistance is $5,250 or less. An employee can exclude up to that value of benefits each year. Did you provide an amount valued at higher than $5,250 for educational benefits during the year? Enter the amount that the employee must include in income with the W-2 form wages in Box 1. Expect any applicable employees to pay a tax on these higher reimbursements.
