Mileage Reimbursement

Postby Makis » Mon Dec 05, 2016 10:53 pm

s About Taxes)/Mileage Reimbursement Advertisement Expert: Carole Dunton - 6/19/2008 I am a sales rep for a fortune 500 company.  My territory is a 35 mile radius of my home.  My employer paid me .505 per mile from home to my accounts and back to my home.  Effective 6/06/08 my employer, per IRS rules, is now telling me that the first and last 20 miles are commute mileage.  If my first account is 3 miles from my home and my last account is 4 miles from my home with 60 miles between the first and last stops, my employer is deducting 40 miles.  I say they should only be deducting 7 miles.  Who is right?

ANSWER: Hi,

If 20 miles is the distance from your home to your office, that would be the commuting distance.

Regards,

Carole

Carole,

I work from home.  Does the 20 mile commute apply if the first store I visit for my job is only 3 miles from my house.  Sorry for not telling you this before.

Mileage Reimbursement

Hi,

If you work from home for your employer's convenience and don't have an office at the employer's place of business, you can deduct all the miles as business miles including the first and last stops.  If your employer reimburses you less than the Federal rate for your business miles you can deduct the additional expenses as Unreimbursed Employee Business expenses to the extent the additional expenses exceed 2% of your adjusted gross income.  I'm assuming you are a W2 employee.

Regards,

Carole
