Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns
. To answer directly, IRS policy permits for an 'either/or' approach. An employer may either give you a formal allowance for travel on their behalf, or permit you to write off based on a set amount of miles. The option here is yours based on taxes, but the employer is not required to compensate you at the IRS limit--they can either offer you more or less based on your own internal agreement with the employer.
Hope that clarifies.
