For purposes of computing the allowance under a fixed and variable rate (FAVR) plan, the standard automobile cost may not exceed $28,000 ($31,000 for trucks and vans).
The updated rates are effective for deductible transportation expenses paid or incurred on or after the effective date; and for mileage allowances or reimbursements paid to, or transportation expenses paid or incurred by, an employee or a charitable volunteer on or after Jan. 1, 2016.
