If Employers Don’t Reimburse, Employees Can Claim Mileage Deduction

Mileage reimbursement is not mandatory in the US (in most cases), however, the IRS issues a yearly Standard Mileage Rate for use by employees and employers in the following ways:

  1. The rate gives employees a rate to use when they claim mileage deduction at tax time.
  2. It gives employers a reasonable reimbursement rate based on current research.
  3. The rate informs employers of the amount employees kickback for minimum wage considerations.

The rate gives employees a chance to get compensated either through payment by the employer or as a deduction for business related mileage on their taxes.
