Pre-Tax Parking Option for Employees

State and Federal tax laws allow employees to save taxes on parking at work by setting up a pretax payroll deduction that reduces taxable income. Qualified expenses are exempt from Federal, State and FICA (Social Security and Medicare) taxes. Your tax savings will vary, depending on your deduction amount and your tax bracket. Most employees will save approximately $13.50 on every $50 they pay for qualified expenses (27%).Employees can complete the online enrollment form throughout the year.
