The daily explains that as of 2015 there is a recipe that shows that if an employee uses a company car for private purposes, then the company must charge you an amount every month (from PLN 250 to PLN 400).
Such a rule should be a facilitation for employers, but the tax department noted that this is a good opportunity for additional income. "According to civil servants, the employer must add to the employee's income the value of the gasoline used by him in a private fund (and financed by the company), and tax it (18 or 32% of the PIT)," we read.

However, the entire battle lasts for four years. And I have the impression that this is the reason for the resistance of the officials. Maybe they expect the courts eventually to change their minds – says Hanna Filipczyk, an Enodo Advisors tax advisor, Rzeczpospolita.
Other entrepreneurs receive judgments which follow that the judgments on other issues, they are not binding on the tax administration.
