Tax Deductions and Business Travel:  A Refresher

When reimbursing employees for work travel, business owners have a couple different options from which to choose. Keeping a detailed report for reimbursement on exact expenses is one way. But another, more simplified way is to use per diem rates. A per diem rate is a fixed reimbursement amount per day for lodging, meals and incidentals. The IRS does not treat per diem payments as wages. Therefore the payments are non-taxable as long as the payment is equal to or less than the federal per diem rate.

Claiming a Business Bad Debt
Running a family business requires management of the occasional debt. Once money is owed to you that cannot be paid, “regular debt” turns into “bad debt.” Writing off bad debt isn’t pleasant but, thankfully, the  Tax Code allows  you a deduction  for it. Bad debts closely tied to running your business may be deducted on a business income tax return, as long as they fall within certain guidelines.
