Tax Advantage Premium Plan (TAPP)

The Tax Advantage Premium Plan (TAPP) allows employees to have required health plan premiums withheld from their paychecks on a pre-tax basis. Any such premiums for the CSU sponsored coverage you have selected will be deducted each month from your salary before federal and state income and Social Security/Medicare taxes are calculated and deducted.

Eligibility
All CSU employees are eligible to participate in TAPP if they are active CSU employees enrolled in a CalPERS health plan and have health care contributions withheld from their paychecks.

Enrollment
Eligible employees are automatically enrolled in the program unless non-participation is requested at the time of enrollment. There is a $2.04 service charge per year, which is automatically collected by the State Controller's Office through a payroll deduction.
For more information, please review theĀ TAPP Brochure.
