H&r block military Users of employer-provided vehicles. H&r block military   If an employer-provided vehicle was available for your use, you received a fringe benefit. H&r block military Generally, your employer must include the value of the use or availability of the vehicle in your income. H&r block military However, there are exceptions if the use of the vehicle qualifies as a working condition fringe benefit (such as the use of a qualified nonpersonal use vehicle). H&r block military   A working condition fringe benefit is any property or service provided to you by your employer for which you could deduct the cost as an employee business expense if you had paid for it.

H&r block military You fully accounted to your employer for your work-related expenses. H&r block military You received full reimbursement for your expenses.

H&r block military If you meet all of these conditions, there is no need to show the expenses or the reimbursements on your return. H&r block military If you would like more information on reimbursements and accounting to your employer, see chapter 6 . H&r block military    If you meet these conditions and your employer included reimbursements on your Form W-2 in error, ask your employer for a corrected Form W-2. H&r block military Volunteers.
