Is tuition reimbursement from the church I work for taxable to me?

For purposes of determining whether an employee fringe benefit is taxable to the employee, the same rules apply whether the employers are tax-exempt organizations or private sector businesses. If the employer has an educational assistance plan, then reimbursements up to $5,250 for any higher education costs  are tax free. If the reimbursements are for courses that are job related, there is no dollar limit on the tax-free benefit.
