All amounts are for illustration only and will vary for each customer.

We only prorate refunds on a monthly basis.

Payroll Deduction Customers

The parking permit year is August to August. However, customers on payroll deduction, will not start paying for usage until mid-September. For example, from the table above: If you are on payroll deduction and you return your permit on September 1, you owe one month of usage ($726/9 = $81 monthly usage). Because we prorate on a monthly basis, you will continue to see deductions until monthly usage has been paid in full.
