In order to ensure availability of communication while conducting business, the District has three options for using cell phones.
Option # 1: Use a personal cell phone for business and receive up to a $50 monthly stipend. This is considered taxable income and will be included in the employee’s W2 for tax reporting.
Option # 2: Be reimbursed for the business use of a personal cell phone. It will require the submission of the detail monthly billing statement, highlighting business-related calls. Reimbursement under this option is not taxable.
Option # 3: Obtain a District-owned cell phone for business use only. This will require a monthly submission of a report indicating that the phone was used strictly for business. The cost of personal calls made using a District-owned phone will be paid to the District.
