Pre-Income Tax Payroll Deduction

The Pre-Tax Parking Fee Deduction Program allows regular employees the choice to payroll deduct parking fees on a pre-tax basis, resulting in a reduction in taxable federal income taxes and Medicare taxes. The net effect is buying a pass at a discounted price. Federal tax laws do not allow for a refund of the Pre-Tax Parking Fee once deducted.

To stop payroll deductions, the permit must be returned to the Transportation Office. Until the permit is returned, it is considered active, and the permit holder will remain financially responsible for the permit fee. If a pre-tax parking deduction is missed for any reason, including due to termination of employment or an insufficient amount in the paycheck to cover the permit fee, the permit holder is still financially responsible for the permit fee.

Failure to pay a missed deduction may result in the revocation of a permit. By participating in the Program, you agree that: (1) the University may withhold any overdue and outstanding parking permit fees from any amounts owed to you by the University; and (2) any outstanding balance is a debt to the University that may be collected.

Permits are paid via 24 payroll installments and expire annually on June 30. Permit expiration dates are printed on the front of the hangtag.
