In the summer, grad students in my dept. get the choice of paying tuition for 1 credit and not paying income taxes, or paying income taxes but not paying for 1 credit. I chose to pay for 1 credit, and guess what, they still took the taxes out of my check. Meaning I'm out $600 of my already teeny paycheck for next month. I think I drop out and go back to work at Wal-Mart, yes?
