Automatic Renewal/Payroll Deduction: Verify Mailing Address

Most employees have their parking fee payroll deducted. This includes AMS (Ambulatory Shared), AMR (Ambulatory Reserved) and EME (Emeritus) permits. If you fall into this group, we'll automatically renew your permit and mail it to the address we have on record. The new permit rate will be reflected in your September pay.

About Payroll Deduction
  • Federal law allows parking costs to be deducted from the salary of eligible employees before taxes are applied.
  • By paying for a permit through payroll deduction, the amount of salary subject to Federal and State withholding tax is reduced by the cost of the permit. 
  • Payroll deducting permit fees is the only way for eligible employees to take advantage of the pre-tax opportunity. A take-home pay calculator is available to demonstrate this benefit.

Non-Payroll Deduction: Re-Apply for Permit by August 1

If your permit is not payroll deducted, complete a permit application by August 1. Choose one of these payment options:

  • Start payroll deduction - If you're full-time faculty or staff, we can payroll deduct your permit fee on a pre-tax basis (read more below). Sign the waiver on the application form. Scan and email the form to or fax it to 919-681-7746.
