According to IRS regulations, some payments made to employees for reimbursement of non-job related graduate-level education expenses are taxable to the employee. Amounts in excess of $5,250 per year are taxable to the employee and must be paid through payroll. These payments are processed on the EDFT screen using the DOS code of EAR. An example is shown below.
