Taxable Fellowship Stipends? Marie Smith 10 Apr 2002 14:53 EST

Hi All

I just had a very distraught student come in to my office.  He is receiving
a federal fellowship stipend.  He was told by the awarding agency that it is
not taxable.  H&R Block did his taxes last year and told him that it was not
taxable.  He received no 1099 or other forms indicating that he needed to
pay taxes.  He just received an e-mail from his program officer saying that
his stipend is, indeed, taxable.

If anyone has had experience with this, I would appreciate any insight you
can give.
