Tax-Savings Accounts

Caterpillar allows you to stretch your hard-earned dollars by reducing your out-of-pocket costs for eligible health and dependent care expenses through our flexible spending accounts (FSA) and parking and transit expenses through our commuter account.

Tax-savings accounts allow you to set aside money through pretax payroll deductions to pay for certain eligible expenses. The money isn’t taxed when it goes into the FSA or commuter account, and the reimbursement isn’t taxed when it comes back to you. So, you’re able to pay for eligible expenses with tax-free dollars. Caterpillar offers you three types of accounts:

  • Health Care FSA (two types: general purpose and limited purpose)
  • Dependent Care FSA
  • Commuter Account
