(b) the fringe benefit is constituted by the reimbursement of the recipient, in whole or in part, in respect of an amount of a Division 28 car expense incurred by the recipient in relation to a car owned by, or leased to, the recipient, being a reimbursement calculated by reference to the distance travelled by the car; and


(c) the recipient gives to the employer, before the declaration date, a declaration, in a form approved by the Commissioner, purporting to set out:
