2019 Personal Use of a Company Automobile

According to IRS regulations, the personal usage of company cars by employees must be treated as taxable compensation income (and is subject to normal payroll taxes). In valuing this compensation, the general rule is the employee’s income is equal to what it would cost in a regular transaction to lease a comparable vehicle for the time used for personal purposes.
