2015 IRS Mileage Rates

Mom Doing Nanny Taxes

It is that time again to make sure that you are getting properly paid for the mileage you drive in your nanny position. F0r 2015, the IRS has increased rates to 57.5 cents a mile! Please make sure you go over these with your employers and get properly paid for any mileage you drive. 1.5 cents doesn’t sound like much but it does add up.

Lets say you drive an average of 150 miles a week for week that was $84 dollars in 2014 but in 2015 that is $86.25. That would be an additional $117 a year. That could be about 4 or 5 oil changes, a tire or 4 tanks of gas depending on the price. So the pennies really do add up.

Nannies using their own vehicles for transporting the children and work related duties, should also make sure they have adequate insurance coverage. Check with your insurance agent to make sure your policy is up to date and covers all your needs.
