FAQ about CPM
Cents per Mile (CPM) is a method that businesses can use to reimburse occasional drivers. It is also the rate at which drivers can deduct driving expenses from their taxes. The IRS offers a standard CPM rate for business driving that is updated annually. In 2023, the rate is 65.5¢ cents per mile.
While the IRS rate is tax-free, it doesn’t take into account regional sensitivities like a FAVR program does. In addition to the inequity created by using a single rate for all drivers, the IRS rate can also lead to overpayment or underpayment of vehicle reimbursements. However, for many customers Cents per Mile is a great program.
Cardata verifies every driver’s insurance policy to minimize your risk profile. The wrong insurance endorsement can leave you liable, but Cardata takes care of that. There are more than 100 insurers in the US, but we have the expertise to verify all their various policies.
The right insurance coverage is a requirement for FAVR programs. Cardata works with every driver to make sure they are covered.
The IRS standard mileage rate is an optional rate that you can use to reimburse your drivers who use their personal car for work. The IRS updates the rate(s) every year. You can reimburse anything up to and including the IRS standard tax-free. Anything difference above the rate is taxable.
The IRS standard rate in 2023 are:
- 65.5 cents per mile driven for business use
- 22 cents per mile driven for medical or moving mileage for qualified active-duty members of the Armed Forces
- 14 cents per mile driven in service of charitable organizations*
