IRS: The Grinch who stole free rides?

BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) - Nine Bainbridge city workers who take city vehicles home with them will now have to pay a daily fee of $3.00.

City council members say according to the IRS, employees should be taxed on their commute to and from work.

"We want to make sure that we're following the law and make sure that we're treating our employees fairly but correctly and I think this is just a step to make sure that we do that," said Chris Hobby Bainbridge City Manager.      

Council members say public safety workers won't be affected.  The new policy will go into effect on the first day of the new year.
