In many states, a nanny is legally entitled to the IRS mileage reimbursement rate for every mile she drives on the job when using her own car. This includes when she’s transporting the child and when she’s running errands for the family. It does not include miles driven in the nanny’s regular commute. The reimbursement covers all the costs associated with operating the car including gas, regular maintenance, and repairs.
