IRS Regulations require that Tuition Remission benefits used to register for any Health and Fitness courses, which are listed under the Growth Enrichment section of the UNM Continuing Education catalog, be included as taxable income and subject to withholding.

It is the employee’s responsibility to monitor their use of Tuition Remission.
