Transportation Webinar: KSM and Scopelitis to Discuss Per Diem Plan Tax Benefits and Staying Compliant

Posted 8:45 PM by
In the aftermath of tax reform, which impacted company drivers by eliminating the personal income tax deduction for out-of-pocket business expenses, more carriers are considering implementing per diem plans to help offset this change. By recognizing the portion of driver pay that encompasses these expenses, per diem plans can provide clear payroll and income tax savings, and in many cases provide drivers with more after-tax pay than under the previous deduction model. However, it is important to be aware of the IRS’s accountable plan rules in order to remain compliant and not jeopardize potential savings.

Beginning in early 2019 … surprise … the rate party was over. It feels like carriers have quickly gone from the best party since deregulation in 1980 to potentially the biggest hangover ever!
