HOW YOU CAN SAVE EVEN MORE

There are two additional ways to save and they involve working with your employer.  The first is buying your transit pass using pre tax dollars.  The Internal Revenue Service allows you to have the cost of your transit pass deducted from your payroll check prior to Federal taxes being withdrawn.  This reduces your annual tax burden and that of your employer.  Most payroll services know about this deduction and can accommodate this request. The second is having your employer establish a transit benefit program.  The Internal Revenue Service allows an employer to deduct up to $225.00 per month per employee from Federal Corporate Income taxes if the employer subsidizes transit fares up to that level.  An employer can choose to subsidize lesser amounts and still be eligible to deduct those payments. Up to the $225 per month, the subsidy is NOT a taxable benefit to the employee.
