Imputed Income - FAQ's - Click here to access

  • You may see a line for “Imputed Income” in the earnings section of your Pay Stub if Belleville Public Schools is covering you under the Group Term Life Insurance policy (and if the coverage exceeds $50k). Group Term Life is a taxable fringe benefit. The IRS requires that you pay tax on the value of this taxable fringe benefit when it exceeds $50k of value.
  • Therefore, the line for Imputed Income on your Pay Stub is a figure that is your "taxable premium" for life insurance that is paid for any insurance over $50k of value.
  • The Imputed Income figure is displayed only to reflect your taxable earnings. It does not affect your gross pay; it only affects your gross taxable earnings.
  • Previously, you may have saw this figure only on your W-2 in box 12A Code C. You will likely now see this figure each pay period on your Pay Stub.
