Soon Jeffersonians Can Purchase Parking,
Transpasses, Trailpasses, Commuter Tokens on Pre-Tax Basis
This plan will allow employees to purchase parking coupons, transpasses, trailpasses and commuter tokens from Jefferson’s Commuter Services Office through payroll deductions on a pre-tax basis.
The new tax legislation makes it possible for employees to enroll for pre-tax salary reductions up to a maximum of $240 per month ($175 for parking and $65 for mass transit). The gross pay of participating employees will be reduced by the parking/transportation salary amounts before taxes are calculated, in a manner similar to current payroll reductions under the OPT Flexible Benefits Program. This means that employees utilizing the services of the CSO will not pay taxes on the money spent for qualified transportation expenses.
Specific detailed information is being finalized and will be distributed through Jefferson shortly. It is anticipated that this new Jefferson benefit will become effective during July.
For additional information on this new benefit, please contact the Commuter Services Office at 5-6417 or call Employee Benefits at 3-8100.
