Taxation of Board-Paid Benefits

Taxation of monthly, Board dependent subsidy toward any type of domestic partner coverage occurs every month on the last paycheck of the month.

Employees enrolled in either medical, dental or vision coverage for a domestic partner or domestic partner and family will have the deduction taken from the employee’s paycheck as a post-tax deduction.

Employees covering a domestic partner of the same sex and legally married are able to add their eligible domestic partner on a tax-free basis with the proper documentation (marriage certificate).

The cost of Board-paid life insurance in excess of $50,000.00 will be taxed on every paycheck.

The taxable benefits are:

  • The cost of life insurance in excess of $50,000.00, which are paid/subsidized by the Board.
  • The monthly contribution (subsidy) that the Board pays on the employee’s behalf for any type of domestic partner coverage and/or children of the domestic partner.


Medical Opt Out

Employees who have declined to participate in the District’s medical insurance plan (Medical Opt Out) will receive $100.00 per month, based on the employee’s deduction schedule, as follows:

  1. 10-month employees will receive their payment in 20 bi-weekly paychecks.
  2. 11-month employees will receive their payment in 24 bi-weekly paychecks.
  3. 12-month employees will receive their payment in 26 bi-weekly paychecks.


Employees Returning to Work after a Leave Status

Employees in a Board-approved leave of absence will be billed for employee-paid benefits in accordance to the type of leave. The benefits for which you have been billed will be cancelled, if payment is not received by the end of the grace period. If you return to work prior to receiving a Grace Period Notice, the premiums due will be automatically deducted from your bi-weekly check (one regular deduction plus one arrears) until the full amount of the outstanding premiums are paid in full.
