The revalued mileage scale

The mileage scale for personal income tax is increased by 10% in 2021. This increase takes into account the sharp increase in prices borne by employees who go to work by car. Prosecutors estimate that this impulse offers an average saving in personal income tax of 150 euros per household for the 2.5 million households that already opt for the deduction of real costs. Therefore, it is necessary to compare the best solution for you between the fixed reduction of 10% and the deduction of the actual costs.

Exempt telecommuting allowances
