Which amount is deductible?
The deductible amount depends on how often you travel and on how long the journeys are. The table mentioned below shows which amount is deductible in your situation.
|One-way||Number of times per week|
|Distance more than (km)||But less than (km)||4 days or more||3 days||2 days||1 day|
Does it mention a *? In that case, the deductible amount is € 0.24 per kilometer of one way of the journey x the number of days you have traveled in 2021.
The maximum travel deduction is €2.185.
I travel to work using my own transport.
Do you travel to your work using your own car or motorcycle, for example? In that case, you are not allowed to deduct travel costs. However, your employer is allowed to give you tax-free compensation per kilometer. In 2020, this amounts up to €0,19 per kilometer in 2020.
