    I am a S corporation. How much should I pay myself per mile if I pay myself Perdiem for every day out.
    I am just trying to figure out what would be a reasonable pay. What do companies that pay Perdiem pay per mile?
    Right now I pay myself $.25 a mile I know that is low but I’ve heard that megas are paying under 30 to start and they don’t even offer per diem

    Looks like high .30 if getting per diem.
    I better give myself a raise before IRS comes knocking on my door.
    I think.40 cpm plus per diem is reasonable.

    Do they pay $52.80 per day? If so that looks like a good deal.
