If my employer pays per diem, how do I write that off?

Using the term "per diem deduction" can be a little confusing because two things are happening.

  1. CONUS and OCONUS per diem rates are being used to come up with meal expenses and incidental expenses, and
  2. An employer is often reimbursing pilots and flight attendants in the for of per diem while at work.

These are two entirely different things.  Think of it this way:

  1. The M&IE expenses for the year get calculated based on your layovers, then
  2. The amount of nontaxable per diem that you were reimbursed by your employer will offset this amount.

EZPerDiem has a place for you to enter nontaxable per diem that you were reimbursed.  This is the yearly total nontaxable per diem that is entered.  When you enter this number in EZPerDiem, the math is done for you.  You simply enter the numbers on the Final Tax Report into TurboTax, IRS Form 2106, or email the report to your accountant.

What's all this about?
