The simple answer is that the mileage is something you determine with your caregiver.

  • The IRS determines on a yearly basis the mileage reimbursement rate

  • Beginning January 2017, the reimbursement rate is 56 cents per mile for business miles driven

  • This rate covers the cost of gasoline and wear and tear on the car driven while “on the job.” 

  • The mileage reimbursement is not considered taxable compensation, so the employer and employee are not required to pay taxes on this compensation.

  • Mileage reimbursement commuting to and from a job is not considered “on the job” and is taxable compensation per IRS regulations. (Source:
