Congress passed a bill that includes a retroactive extension to January 1, 2014 for commuting costs.
The bill now awaits President Obama’s signature, which is expected soon, and includes equal treatment of commuting costs: All commuters may reduce their pre-tax income to account for their commuting costs. Under the law, however, those who drive to work and pay for parking are allowed to exclude more ($250 per month) than those who use mass transit ($130 per month). This measure again provides parity by also allowing mass transit riders to exclude $250 per month.
Paypro will be monitoring this legislation closely and will publish updates as more information becomes available.
