City of Pittsburgh Considers Taxing College Tuition

Dear Commons Community,

The City of Pittsburgh is weighing a proposal to tax tuition at the ten colleges and universities located within its boundaries.  This is not a completely new idea.  Other cities (Providence, Boston) have considered it but Pittsburgh would be the first major city to actually impose such a tax.  Given the non-profit and tax exempt status of most colleges, such a move would likely result in a court challenge.
