Federal tax code will modify 'U' finances

The proposed reform of the federal tax
code will apparently affect the
University in several important ways,
including a reduction in alumni
donations, increased taxation of student
loans and scholarships, and gradually
decreased take-home pay for teaching
The tax bill, which has passed a
House/Senate conference committee and
is likely to be approved by November,
would drastically reform the federal tax
system. The bi-partisian legislation
would shift the tax burden away from
individual Americans and place it onto
large corporations. It would also

eliminate loopholes that have reduced
taxes for corporations and richer
SINCE THE University is a non-
profit institution and presently pays no
taxes, its tax status will not be altered.
But according to University
administrators and lusiness school
professors, Michigan will still lose
money due to reduced alumni.
Officials could not cite direct loss
estimates because the bill remains in
draft form. They predicted, however, that
the University's losses could exceed $1
The tax bill "is likely to reduce

enthusiasm in giving (alumni) gifts,"
said James Brinkerhoff, the University
chief financial officer. "It will affect a
substantial amount of gifts."
UNDER THE current tax system,
donors in the highest tax bracket, 50
percent, are able to deduct half of their
gifts to non-profit organizations like the-
University from their income taxes. The
proposed legislation would cut the highest
personal tax rate to 28 percent and would
tax donors at a higher rate. This would,
in effect, make the cost of giving more
expensive and would discourage gifts
from alumni who had given to obtain
Gifts other than money, such as

artwork, land, and stocks and securities,
will be most directly affected, according
to Grant Clowery, an assistant professor
of accounting. 'Ihe new bill would reduce
the minimum tax rate to 15 percent and
will negatively affect philanthropists
who are likely to give property.
predicted that most alumni would
continue contributing to the University
regardless of tax rates. Accounting Prof.
James Wheeler compared this to
churchgoers who will always give to
their parish, even when their income is
Students will also 'be directly affected
if the tax bill becomes law. Under the

bill's proposed structure, interest on
student loans will no longer be tax
deductible, which would make the loans
more expensive.
Parents who begin to save for college
tuition when their children are young
will lose loopholes that currently exist in
"Clifford Trusts." These enable parents
to transfer money to children under 14,
decreasing the parents' tax payments due
to the children's lower tax bracket.
IN ADDITION, students on
scholarships that include room and
board, who presently pay no tax, will be
required to pay tax on the room and

SACUA issues sex statement

April 2, was first presented at the
