So the way it works basically-you anticipate which side is gon be cleaned on a given day and NOT forget to park on the opposite side prior, and you keep switching it up like that?

One thing to remember about comped parking is that you have to pay tax on it over $240/month which is the current IRS non-taxable threshold for parking/transportation cost benefits. If you have a monthly permit, with a favorable rate, you pay the difference between the two in fringe benefit tax. If you pay the daily rate, without a permit, and the employer validates the parking, you are subject to valuation of the benefit at fair market value of the service in the garage. If the employer had a lot/garage that was free and accessible to customers, etc., then you would not have incurred a fringe benefit as it would be something provided to everyone at that address.

Well it seems that taking the subway would be the easy way to get back and forth from work then. Thanks for the info...convenient how they failed to mention that tax when they were pitching me the position, that doesn't really speak well of them.

Someone once tried driving from Rego Park to Soho years ago. He was never heard from again but the family still holds out hope, albeit slim.
There were unsupported rumours that he was spotted a couple months back in the Turtle Bay area but who knows?
