If an employee is paid a flat rate vehicle allowance, which is not based on kilometres travelled, the allowance will be a taxable benefit to the employee. If it is taxable, the employer will also have to deduct CPP, EI and income tax from the payment. The employee may be able to claim employment expenses on their personal tax return as a deduction to offset this taxable benefit.
