H.R. 1 Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017

Qualified Transportation Fringe Benefits

Beginning with April paychecks, the University is moving from a pre-tax deduction of qualified parking permits to a post-tax deduction of qualified parking permits.

If you pay for your parking permit via a payroll deduction, you should see a slight increase in tax withholdings (federal, state, and FICA) related to this change.

There will not be any retroactive changes related to any pre-tax parking deductions processed on prior paychecks.
