IRS Publication 15-B includes new updates that impact the employment tax treatment of fringe benefits. The 2018 version of the guide features several changes resulting from the new tax law and other regulatory guidance, including:

  • The suspension of the exclusion of qualified bicycle commuting reimbursements from an employee’s income for tax years starting after December 31, 2017, and before January 1, 2026.
  • The suspension of the exclusion for qualified moving expense reimbursements from an employee’s income for tax years starting after December 31, 2017, and before January 1, 2026, except for active duty servicemembers moving because of a permanent change of station.
  • Limits on the deduction by employers of expenses for certain fringe benefits, such as employer-provided meals.
  • Definitions of items that aren’t tangible personal property for purposes of employee achievement awards.
