Tax breaks for employers that give workers bus fares

Quebec — The Quebec government is offering employers a tax break for providing employees monthly transit passes. As part of the 2006 budget, the government said employers that cover the cost of the transit passes — worth about $800 a year — would get a tax break of $158. The bus passes would not be a taxable benefit.
