Pre-tax transit limits increase for 2023
The city Office of Payroll Administration has increased the monthly pre-tax limit for commuter benefits from $280 to $300, the new IRS limit. The change took effect on the first pay date in January. DOE employees do not need to change their commuter benefits’ payroll deductions or their current Edenred order. Employees who were at the previous pre-tax maximum of $280 for transit and parking will automatically have $300 deducted each month. Please contact the DOE’s Payroll Benefits Unit at EFTBenefits@schools.nyc.gov if you have any questions.
