FAVR: The corporate equivalent
of the IRS mileage rate

The IRS designed FAVR for businesses like yours
to deliver accurate, tax-free reimbursements.

How does a FAVR vehicle program work?

Driving a vehicle incurs two types of costs: fixed and variable.
FAVR, or Fixed And Variable Rate, addresses both.
Each employee receives a reimbursement rate based on
Your company selects a car to generate the FAVR rates
A STANDARD VEHICLE
Company-selected, job-appropriate car
FAVR reimbursements are based on each employees territory costs
TERRITORY COSTS
Geographically-sensitive costs
FAVR reimbursements are based on each employees territory size
TERRITORY SIZE
Mileage driven within territory

What makes a FAVR reimbursement fair?

FAVR accurately addresses the costs of owning and operating a standard vehicle relative to each employee's territory costs and miles driven. 

Unequal expenses should not receive equal reimbursements. Standard allowances and mileage rates over-reimburse some employees and under-reimburse others. FAVR solves this problem and is tax-free for both company and employee (IRS Revenue Procedure 2010-51).

How are FAVR reimbursements calculated?

Fixed Costs
(Time-Based Costs)

  • Insurance
  • License & Registration
  • Automobile Taxes
  • Depreciation

Variable Costs
(Distance-Based Costs)

  • Gas
  • Oil
  • Maintenance
  • Tires
