TAP Tax Reimbursement Program

HUCTW negotiated the  TAP Tax Reimbursement Fund with Harvard in order to help our members recoup a significant portion of the tax cost from non job-related, graduate-level classes taken using the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP). Members who take two or more such classes during the 2024 calendar year may have between $1,000 – $12,000 in taxes withheld from their paychecks due to the University’s  TAP Tax Policy and this program will reimburse you for the majority of the tax withheld. Awards will be based on each applicant’s tax costs and the total number of applications we receive. The application is very short and you can fill it out below. Fill out the application and then submit the relevant paystub.

  • Application Deadline: The application for the spring 2024 semester is due on May 24, 2024.
  • Award Delivery: All members with eligible expenses who apply by the deadline will receive awards. We will aim to deposit fall awards into the first June paycheck.
  • Please contact us at huctw.taptaxfund@huctw.org if you have questions about the new TAP Tax Reimbursement Program or the application process.

TAP Tax Reimbursement Fund Application

Fill out the TAP Tax Fund Application below:

  • Please upload your May 3, 2024 paystub (payrecord) from PeopleSoft to our secure server.

    We need this specific paystub (May3, 2024) to show us how much tax you are having or had withheld from your paycheck each pay period. We cannot reimburse you unless we have the relevant paystub(s).

    You can download a particular paystub by navigating to the "Paychecks" menu in PeopleSoft. Under the "Check Date" list click on the relevant date in order to open the paystub for that date, and then click the download icon. You may need to unblock pop-ups to do this. A screengrab of the paystub is fine too.
