less-

On January 4, we blogged about the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012’s (the “Act”) increases in the pre-tax contribution that commuters may make towards van pools as well as transit passes.

On January 11, 2013, the IRS released Revenue Procedure 2013-15, which clarifies that the 2013 limit for van pools and transit passes is $245, effective January 1, 2013.

The IRS still has yet to announce how to apply the increase retroactive to January 1, 2012, given that the 2012 tax year has come to a close.  We will keep you informed of additional developments. 

For more information, please see the IRS website here.
