Tell your congressman to extend transit parity

The current tax-deduction for transit riders of $230, increased from $120 in 2009, is set to expire next month unless congress acts to extend the benefit.

Please click here to sign a petition from Commuter Nation and let your voice be heard. Commuter Nation will send your message to your congressman telling them that you support extending the $230 limit on tax-deductions for transit-users.

If this legislation expires, the limit will go back to $120, while drivers will continue to receive their $230 parking tax-deduction.This tax benefit is extremely important in the fight against congestion, pollution, and towards make our cities more livable for walking, biking, and transit.

Tell your Congressman to extend the $230 tax-deduction limit on transit expenses!
