Commuter Tax Save Program Increase

NJIT has been informed that the transit tax benefit that was part of the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act from February 17, 2009 has expired December 31, 2011. 

Effective January 1, 2013, the transit cap has increased from $125 to $245 per month.   

NJIT offers two Commuter Tax Save Programs - NJ Transit for traveling on NJ Transit Systems and Transitchek for employees traveling on other states' Transit Systems. 

If you are currently participating in the NJ Transit Program, Payroll will automatically increase your biweekly deduction to reflect the new maximum benefit. 

Participants in the Transitchek Program can go to or call toll free 1-888-618-2435 for instructions on how to change their individual elections.

For questions concerning these programs, please contact Mrs. Ritu Kumar at (973) 596-3159 or Miss Antoinette Pittman at (973) 596-3161.
