Frequently Asked Questions

My employer offers cash reimbursement for mass transit expenses, is this permitted?

Employers are no longer permitted to offer cash reimbursement as of January 1, 2016. If an employer continues to offer cash reimbursement, the value of the benefit will be taxable to employees and included in gross income. Employers can continue to self-administer a commuter benefit program but must follow the updated guidance in Revenue Ruling 2014-32. Employers may also opt to contract with a third party, like Benefit Resource, to offer a compliant program.
