Common Misconceptions about Per Diem

Here are a few common misconceptions about Per Diem:

As long as I am away twelve hours I will receive per diem for that day, regardless of where I spend my off duty time.

  • While the twelve hour rule is important, staying away from your tax home for twelve hours, a more overarching rule is that per diem is only available for drivers that spend their off duty time in their sleeper.

 

For the days that I receive per diem my earnings will be increased by $63/day.

  • For the days that you receive per diem you will in fact receive $63/day but it will not be incrementally added to your mileage pay but will be subtracted from your mileage pay. Once that amount is subtracted from your mileage pay your taxes will be calculated and then the $63/day will be added back as a non-taxable reimbursement so the extra amount that you receive will be essentially the tax savings that you save.

 

Per diem will reduce my taxable W-2 income and will make it difficult for me to get a home or car loan.

  • Most bank are concerned primarily with your take home pay which will increase under the per diem program and we will provide a letter to your bank that will explain the program to them to assist you.

 

If I don’t participate in the per diem program I will just take that amount off on my year end tax return.

  • Historically, that was an option for those that did not want to participate could track their applicable days and show that as an unreimbursed employee expense. With the new tax program that was recently passed one of the eliminations was the abilty to take per diem as an unreimbursed employee expense and the only way to take advantage of per deim is to be involved in an employer sponsored program like we have.
