Did your business pay more for your employees’ parking than the monthly exclusion limitation? Treat any excess amount as compensation to the employee. Include that compensation on your employee’s Form W-2. These are specific circumstances when you do not treat what you pay to a third party for employee parking as a disallowed expense. The amount that you enter in Box 1 on your employee’s W-2 form becomes deductible compensation and a part of their wages. The amount will encounter federal income tax withholding, along with FICA and FUTA taxes. Do not exclude the excess as a de minimis fringe benefit from your employee’s wages.
