Knowledgebase-Car Allowance PolicyCity of Morristown, Tennessee: Car Allowance Policy

Certain employees of the City may receive an automobile allowance, which is intended to cover the cost of an automobile, including financing, insurance, maintenance and repairs, fuel, etc. Automobiles operated by those receiving such allowance should be appropriate for business use. As representatives of the City those receiving an automobile allowance are expected to maintain their vehicles and keep them in a safe and clean condition. When operating their vehicles such employees shall observe applicable rules of the road.

Automobile allowance payments will be included in the employee's taxable income. No mileage reimbursement shall be paid to employees receiving a car allowance for travel within Hamblen County.
