Including Unit 3 Employees in the Program to Pay for Parking with Pretax Dollars

AS-2584-02/FA - September 12-13, 2002

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate of the California State University (CSU) urge the California Faculty Association and the Board of Trustees to reach agreement to permit Unit 3 employees who pay for parking through payroll deduction to pay for such fees with pretax dollars.

RATIONALE:: With the exception of Unit 3 employees, all CSU employees who pay for parking through payroll deduction are permitted to pay such fees with pretax dollars. Paying for parking with pretax dollars will benefit both faculty as well as the CSU. Specifically, a faculty member in a combined state and federal tax bracket of 36% who pays $140.00 annually for parking would save over $50.00 per year. The CSU would benefit since allowing faculty to pay for parking with pretax dollars would encourage more faculty to pay for parking on a 12-month rather than an academic year basis. This would result in increased revenues to the parking fund.
