Bike commuter act

Eligibility

Regular full-time and part-time employees who work at least half time.

Description

The Bike Commuter Act allows employers to reimburse bike commuters up to $20 per month for bike commuting expenses without counting this as taxable income. Permissible expenses are the purchase of a bike, bike improvements, tune-ups, repairs and other costs that can reasonably be considered bike expenses (clothing related to biking is not considered eligible for this reimburesement).  Those who get to and from work primarily by bike (i.e. 3/5 of the work days in a month) are eligible for reimbursement for that month.

Call HR prior to making your bike purchase if you have questions.  You must make your bike related purchases within a month in which you ride.

Bike commuters will collect receipts from January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016 and turn them in to human resources for reimbursement in January 2017.
