Commuter Benefit Highlights

Internal Revenue Code 26 USC 132(f), allows employees to withhold pre-tax money to pay for mass transit and/or van pool services associated with their regular daily direct commute from home to work and return.

Employees are also allowed to withhold pre-tax money to
pay for parking expenses while at their place of employment.

  • Employees may save up to $130 per month for eligible van pool services and/or mass transit costs.
  • Employees may save up to $250 per month for eligible parking expenses.

Commuter elections can be changed at any time, and balances roll over from year to year. You MUST have
appropriate receipts and documentation of qualifying expenses to get reimbursed. If you do not have
qualifying expenses, your commuter elections cannot be claimed, so it is important to determine the correct
amount to withhold.

If you terminate your service before claiming all contributions, those amounts are
forfeited.
