Additional Notations for Processing Permit Refunds
Employees Cancelling a Permit
Any employee that requests to cancel their permit after the first 30 days of any quarter will pay the same permit fee (See (3)(b) above). Permits purchased via payroll will be charged for the quarter until the quarter fee has been paid in full. Payroll Deduction is an option that an employee voluntarily chooses to allow the employee to purchase the permit in payments rather than pay the entire amount up front.
Processing Fee/Service Charge
A service fee will be charged for refunding (processing) excess permit payments upon return of permit and will follow the approved fee structure. Fees are listed on the Parking Services website.
Permits Not Returned
Permit holders are responsible for turning in a permit that will not be used.
Permits brought for refund following an extended personal/emergency leave do not qualify for a retro-active refund. Unused quarters left on the permit will be refunded. Permit refund balances are calculated from the date the permit was returned to Parking Services.
