As a result of this adjustment, many carriers have implemented per diem programs as a way to get tax free dollars to drivers. Conversely, companies that have not instituted per diem programs might have disappointed drivers as we get closer to the tax filing deadline, and drivers realize that this deduction is a thing of the past.
