You agree that everything you have entered in the EZPerDiem website is true and accurate. You agree that you are solely responsible for the accuracy of anything that you enter into EZPerDiem or your final tax return. You understand that EZPerDiem does not verify that the data you enter is accurate in any way. If you have any doubts about the information generated by the EZPerDiem site, it is your responsibility to verify that it is accurate and applies to your situation before you enter it in your tax return.
While EZPerDiem works diligently to ensure the accuracy of all of our data and calculations, errors are always possible, especially when a very large amount of data is used and compiled. Government data is continuously being updated at random intervals, so we do not guarantee that the per diem calculation will exactly match the latest available from the DOT or GSA. Normally such differences in a per diem calculation are very small and negligible. You are encouraged to seek the knowledge of a certified public accountant or professional tax preparer if you have any concerns about the accuracy of the data EZPerDiem provides or if you have any confusion about how to enter the data into an online or off-the-shelf tax software program. EZPerDiem provides some links to appropriate IRS websites so you can personally verify the accuracy of all calculations or unofficial guidance we may provide. All per diem data used can be found by accessing the IRS website. EZPerDiem recommends you save copies of all tax-related information we provide by printing a hardcopy because we do not guarantee that we will save your data. The primary goal of EZPerDiem is to provide a correct flight crew tax return in an expeditious manner. While we strive to find legitimate ways to save tax money for flight crewmembers, EZPerDiem cannot guarantee that the calculations you will receive will save you the most money possible.
EZPerDiem takes reasonable steps to secure your data. The information that EZPerDiem collects is generally not sensitive. No website is 100% secure, and for that reason EZPerDiem does not guarantee that information entered is secure from third-party users. As such, EZPerDiem does not collect information that it considers sensitive unless it is absolutely necessary. If you feel that information you are asked to enter is too sensitive, you should not enter it into the EZPerDiem website. If you are concerned about internet security, you may simply not use the EZPerDiem services.

EZPerDiem does not prepare taxes. EZPerDiem is only a tool that is used to expedite the tax preparation process. EZPerDiem is first and foremost a per diem calculator and expense tracker intended for use by aviation flight crewmembers. It is simply a tool to be used in adjacent with all of the other tax data available to the general public. EZPerDiem is only a civilian aviation-related website.
Anyone not in the aviation profession will not benefit from the information provided by EZPerDiem. EZPerDiem does not provide official tax advice.
The terms meal expense, standard meal expense, and per diem calculation are used interchangeably throughout this website. Some terms, such as "per diem deduction" are not actual tax nomenclature that will be found in the tax code. These terms are simply used to help users understand the service better.
EZPerDiem gives some unofficial guidance for users of TurboTax and TaxCut tax preparation software. This unofficial guidance is so users can better learn where to insertthe EZPerDiem per diem calculation (standard meal expense) and airline related tax expenses. EZPerDiem is not responsible for mis-entered information into any tax software package, even if it is described within the content of the EZPerDiem site or network of other EZPerDiem sites.
For a pilot or a flight attendant to benefit from deducting meal expenses, that pilot or flight attendant must itemize their deductions on their tax return. If you are a pilot or a flight attendant who takes the standard deduction (does not itemize), the EZPerDiem calculations will not increase your refund. Before you will see an increase in your refund, you must also have enough employee business expenses to exceed the 2% limit as defined by the IRS. Information on the 2% limit is contained in various unofficial places within this website, but can also be accessed via links to the IRS website. You must also include the per diem you were reimbursed from your employer(s). The per diem reimbursement (commonly called nontaxable per diem) is up to you to find in your W-2, last paycheck stub, or other company pay-related documentation. If EZPerDiem provides guidance, it is only to give pilots and flight attendants ideas on what may be a deductible, and that guidance is unofficial. The determination on whether that deduction is legitimate rests with you or your professional tax preparer.
Users not accepting this user agreement may not use the EZPerDiem website.
