Post-Tax Payroll Deduction Information

The University of Wyoming Tax Office has determined that the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that was passed in December 2017 will affect the classification of the pre-tax parking fringe benefit offered through the  payroll deduction process.  Under the previous law, payroll deductions for parking fees were offered on a pre-tax basis, meaning that employees were not taxed on deductions used to pay for parking.   Effective January 2018, parking permit fees will be a post-tax item. Employees that are currently utilizing the pre-tax option will be transitioned to post-tax payroll deductions immediately.  The deduction amount will remain the same and employees do not need to take any action.     

Please note that utilizing payroll deduction to pay for a parking permit allows an employee to pay for the annual parking permit on a monthly basis rather than paying for the total upfront.  Choosing payroll deduction as a form of payment for a parking permit does not affect the taxability of the parking permit.

The Tax Office has posted information on this change here.  You may also contact Casey Green in the Tax Office at (307) 766-2821 or
