Supreme Court to Decide on Student Doctors Tax Status


The US Supreme Court is to decide in its present sitting whether student doctors are considered students or employees of the college or university hospitals they work for. If they are student then they would be exempted from paying taxes on their stipends but if they are legally employees, then student doctors have to pay Social Security tax like any other worker.

As it stands, Federal Circuit courts are split in their rulings. The Supreme Court will hear the case of Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research vs. United States of America. Oral arguments are scheduled to be presented November 8.
