Congress recently passed legislation to increase the public transit commuter benefit, making it equal to the parking benefit, which is now up to $240 a month. This is slated to expire on December 31, 2013. Section 132(f) of the Federal tax code allows employers to offer pre-tax purchases per employee for qualified transit, train or vanpooling benefits. rabbittransit’s partner, Commuter Services, can show you or your employer how this works.
