  • Travel and mileage reimbursment Michigan

    I need to know what the laws are for being paid for travel and mileage reimbursment on privatly owned vehicles. We are required to travel to different locations other than our home office. Deducting the mileage from home to home office.?? Also they have pre set miles to all offices from all offices that are not accurate. Also not being paid for travel time to or from unless traveling during the day time when allready punched in. Is all this legal??

    Easy question first. There are only two states that require mileage reimbursement and Michigan is neither of them. You may be able to deduct actual expenses if you itemize on your 1040 and the unreimbursed business expenses exceed 2% of AGI. Check the IRS site for "unreimbursed business expenses" or see a tax preparer for what type of records you must keep.

    Home to first location and last location to home is commute time and is not generally compensable. If you are required to go into the office BEFORE you go to your first work site of the day (and vice versa), then the time from the office to the location is compensable.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

      The OP might want to look at the following rule as well, just in case. In fact, the entire 29 CFR 785.33-785.41 group of travel related regulations are worth reading.
