A new bill being proposed in congress could soon benefit commuters who ride bikes or e-bikes. The bill would allow riders to take a tax deduction similar to the ones that drivers can already take.
Bicycle Commuter Act of 2019
The Bicycle Commuter Act of 2019 was just introduced to the House of Representatives by three members of Congress.
The bill is designed to give cyclists a similar tax benefit to those received by commuters who travel by car or public transit. Currently, such commuters can receive a tax benefit of up to $265 per month, assuming their employers also participate.
The Bicycle Commuter Act of 2019 would provide 20% of that benefit to cyclists, providing a tax break of up to $53 per month. Cyclists could also deduct the cost of bicycle ridesharing programs, including electric bicycle rideshares. CLICK TO READ MORE
