Bicycle Commuter Choice and the New Federal Tax Law

January 15, 2018

The recent federal tax law passed in December 2017 ended the tax-free Bicycle Commuter Choice benefit. From January 1, 2018, to January 1, 2026, any benefit paid in the Bicycle Commuter program is now taxable.

This includes the December 2017 benefit ($20 voucher), as it would have been paid in January 2018.

We are putting our heads together in Parking and Transportation to see if there is anything we can do to keep the program and meet the new tax requirements. However, until further notice, the $20 voucher is no longer available. The rest of the program remains in place.
