Impact 89FM

Tax Refunds

The FM radio tax supports two student-run radio stations: Impact 89FM and WFIX (an internet-only station). Both stations are supported by a student-voted fee collected each semester.

In order to fulfill a Tax Refund request, the station requires three pieces of information:

  1. A completed version of Impact 89FM’s Tax Refund Request form, which can be downloaded here.
  2. Proof of identity, using a photo of the front of your MSU Student ID.
  3. Proof of payment of the FM Radio Tax, using a screenshot of your tuition bill, which can be found online through stuinfo.msu.edu.

In order to submit your Tax Refund request, you may e-mail the requested information to [email protected]

Digital communication is strongly preferred. If you are unable to e-mail the requested information, you may also mail a copy to the station at G-4 Holden Hall, MSU, East Lansing, MI 48825. 

For fall and spring semesters, you must take action before the end of the first two weeks (or first 10 class days) of the semester, with Impact 89FM receiving all necessary documentation no later than 7:00pm on the 10th day of classes.

For summer semesters, you must take action before the end of the first two weeks (or first 10 class days) of the first session, with Impact 89FM receiving all necessary documentation no later than 7:00pm on the 10th day of classes.

Tax refunds will not be issued to parties who provide incomplete information or information after the 10th day of classes.
