This weeks question comes from Barry, a business owner. We have always provided several employees with company cars. Now we plan to reimburse them for business use of their personal cars. How much can we reimburse employees for automobile expenses? Answer: As announced by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS)  in IR-2008-131, the mileage rate for 2009 is 55 cents per mile. Therefore, if employees account for their business miles to their employers, the employers may reimburse at a rate up to 55 cents per mile without any requirement for the employees to include the reimbursement in taxable income. Contact Vision Payroll if you have any further questions.
