Permanent Commuter Benefit Parity signed into law
Thanks to congressional action and a speedy bill signing, Permanent Commuter Benefit Parity has become a reality. The law allows permanent parity of the pre-tax payroll deductions for transit and vanpool fares with the pre-tax parking benefit deduction. The cap for all commuting modes increases to $255/month in 2016.
