A Tax Free Benefit for your Transportation Expenses
Jefferson's Pre-Tax Parking & Transportation Plan provides an opportunity for you to save tax dollars on the daily purchase of parking coupons, monthly parking, SEPTA, PATCO, Amtrak and NJ Transit items from the Commuter Services Office (CSO).
Employees put aside pre-tax dollars to pay for qualified monthly parking and transportation costs. Up to $245.00 for mass transit and $245.00 for parking may be reduced from your salary each month (limits set by IRS).
The pre-tax salary reduction becomes effective in the pay period following the one in which the enrollment was submitted via Employee Self Service.
Once enrolled, employees must enroll in the pass-buy mail program, PATCO Freedom Card program, monthly parking or go to CSO to purchase parking coupons and other transit items. Depending on item cost and amount put aside in the pre-tax account, employees either have no cash outlay or pay only the portion of the cost not covered by the amount in the pre-tax account with cash, Visa or MasterCard.
Unused balances in the Employee Transportation Account "carry over" from month-to-month and from year-to-year. At termination of employment from Jefferson, amounts remaining in the Transportation Account will be forfeited.
