Personal Use of Auto

When providing an employee (including shareholder/employees in corporations) the use of a company-provided vehicle, a value representing the personal portion of usage of the vehicle must be included in the employee’s W-2 income. The value computed must be included in the employee’s W-2 as wages and is taxable for federal income tax, FICA, Medicare and FUTA. Although FICA and Medicare withholding is required, federal withholding is not required if notice was provided to the employee of the Company’s decision not to withhold by January 31st.
