Law 23-113 requires that employers who have employees who turn down parking benefits offer a Clean air Transportation Fringe Benefit in an amount equal to or more than the market value of the parking benefit minus the employee's contribution to the parking expense subject to the maximum tax-free benefit allowed by the IRS. If the employee declines both the parking benefit and the Clean-air Transportation Fringe Benefit the employer must increase its financial contribution to the health coverage, and/or the taxable wages, to where the employer contribution equals the market value of the benefit offered. The employer also has the option to pay a Clean Air Compliance fee of $100 per month for each employee who is offered parking benefits, cease to offer parking benefits, or develop a transportation demand management plan that the District of Columbia Department of Transportation has determined is likely to reduce the number of commuter trips employees made by car or taxi the previous year. Incorporates provisions from Bill 22-175. FUNDING NOTE - This bill is Subject to Appropriations. See Fiscal Impact Statement in "Other Documents" tab.
