    Yes, they could pay it as a mileage reimbursement and it would actually be in their best interest to do so, as they would not have to pay employer taxes on that amount.

    You should discuss that with them.

    There are exactly two states (CA, MA) that have some type of rules requiring that employers reimburse work related expense. While I do not disagree with your statement that this is wrong, your state has not (so far) choosen to pass such laws.

    Thanks for the advice.

    The key under federal law is minimum wage and overtime. If the employee is paid at least MW and normal OT after deductions, and everything was explained prior to the work being done, then federal rules are probably ok with things.

    State law can be different, but your state is not my state, and I do not know what rules (if any) that your state has.

    This has not started yet was informed by my manager what the owner wants to do. will bob would work the 4 hrs at 7.25 hr he made 10 deliveries. bob would make 29$ in wages and 15$ in delivery charge that would be paid under the bonus category so the way I understand it he would end up making 44$ in taxable income

    I am going to request a little more information. Let's say that Bob is one of your pizza drivers and works exactly 4 hours this week. Could you spell out exactly what is happening with Bob's pay check? I want to very specifically see what Bob's gross wages are for those 4 hours and how this deduction is being handled. (There are several different methods of handling this. Some of the methods are legal and some are not. I cannot tell for sure which method is being used from your question).

    I am working for a pizza delivery co. They are going to give owner delivery car to another store so we will have to use owner own car to deliver in. They are going to give us 1.50$ out of the 1.75$ they charge to the customer as compensation for using owner car. Thy want to pay us under the bonus part of owner pay check. That doesn’t sound right to me that would make us pay taxes on it when it is an expense to drive owner personal cars. Is this right or how should they pay us under?
