In 2016, commuters across the nation rejoiced when permanent parity between the transit benefit and parking benefit was realized.
Unfortunately, our work isn’t done. Congress is working on a monumental change to our tax code and in that process, is considering eliminating many tax provisions like the transit benefit. Early indications are that the proposed package may revoke the section of the tax code that allows for pre-tax transit benefits altogether.
We are asking you to do three things to help protect the Commuter Benefit:
ACT and others are organizing an employer letter. We need your help. Please reach out to major employers you work with, have contacts or can reach out to. We are looking for large employers with regional or national footprints. The link to the draft letter can be found here.
What you can do to help:
ACT, along with other members of the Commuter Benefits Work for Us coalition have started a grassroots campaign. We need your signature, the signature of your members, the signature of your employees, and anyone else. Click Here for a link to the campaign. Also, if you want to add a widget to your website, contact Pavluchuk@actweb.org for the information.
Please pass this alert, the employer letter, and link to the grassroots on to anyone and everyone you can, please include it in newsletters, internal/external communications, and anyway you see fit. If you would like to find additional ways to help, please contact Pavluchuk@actweb.org
