As detailed in a report last week on CCJ, some carriers are considering — or have already implemented — altered pay packages for drivers to help make up for the loss of the per diem deduction tax benefit to company drivers. To help offset the change, fleets are adding per diem reimbursements to drivers’ pay, which are mostly tax free earnings to drivers. They also provide a tax benefit to fleets, too. Read the full report at this link.
Has your fleet changed its driver pay method or added a per diem reimbursement option since last January?
Sound off in the comments below or email email CCJ Senior Editor James Jaillet at email@example.com to tell us about your updated pay package and how drivers responded.
