Flexible Spending Account Plan
The IRS Section 125 Flex Spending Account program allows employees to put tax-sheltered dollars in an account for out-of-pocket medical and/or dependent care expenses that are incurred from January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2016 for the employee and any eligible dependents. The IRS does allow for a 2 1/2 month grace period to incur expenses if all funds are not exhausted by December 31, 2016. The monthly administrative fee is $5.10 for 12-month employees and $6.80 for 9-month employees.

Eligible employees may establish one or both of the following flexible spending accounts, which allow them to use tax-free dollars to pay for eligible expenses.

1. Healthcare Spending Account allows employees to set aside, on a tax-free basis, a minimum of $100 up to a maximum of $2,550 per year for eligible non-reimbursable (i.e., out-of-pocket) medical expenses for the employee and his/her dependents.
2. Dependent Care Spending Account allows employees to set aside, on a tax-free basis, a minimum of $100 up to a maximum of $5,000 per year per family (or $2500 if married filing separately) for those dependent care expenses (i.e., day care costs for children 12 and yournge; before and after school care for children 12 years or younger) incurred in order for the employee and his/her spouse (if married) to work.
