The IRS allows employees to set aside pre-tax funds in an employer-sponsored program, up to certain monthly limits. Employees then order transit and parking passes or vouchers through their local transit authorities, paying with pre-tax dollars up to the limit, and after tax for anything beyond.
Effective January 1, 2023, the monthly pre-tax limit for parking and transit benefits will increase from $280 to $300 per month.
*Example: An employee “parks and rides,” paying $95 for a monthly train ticket and $175 for a monthly parking pass. The employee’s combined tax rate is 35%. This person saves over $33 per month on the train ticket PLUS another $61 per month on parking expenses…a savings of almost $100 every month!
