New NYC Commuter Benefits

New York City Commuters’ Benefit

Effective January 1st, employers in New York City with 20 or more employees will be required to offer tax-protected commuter benefits to their employees.

Once the law goes into effect, employers will be given six months to comply. The New York Department of Consumer Affairs will begin enforcing the law in July, issuing fines of $250 for every 30 days a company is noncompliant. Employers will be required to keep records demonstrating that eligible employees were granted the opportunity to enroll.
