Tax Advantages

IRS Qualified commuter transportation benefit:  For 2018, the monthly exclusion for commuter highway vehicle transportation (vanpool or similar) and transit passes is $260.

This exclusion applies to the following benefits:

  • A transit pass
  • A ride in a commuter highway vehicle between the employee’s home and work place
    • Example:  Vanpool – any vehicle that seats at least 6 adults (not including the driver). In addition, you must reasonably expect that at least 80% of the vehicle mileage will be for transporting employees between their homes and work place with employees occupying at least one-half the vehicle’s seats (not including the driver’s).
