the use of your vehicle. 1040x forms online You provide this information on Schedule C (Form 1040), Schedule C-EZ (Form 1040), or Form 4562. 1040x forms online   If you file Schedule C (Form 1040):

1040x forms online Report your business expenses for self-employment on Schedule C (Form 1040), Schedule C-EZ (Form 1040), or Schedule F (Form 1040), as discussed earlier. 1040x forms online Report your business expenses for your work as an employee on Form 2106 or 2106-EZ, as discussed next. 1040x forms online Employees. 1040x forms online    If you are an employee, you generally must complete Form 2106 to deduct your travel, transportation, and entertainment expenses. 1040x forms online However, you can use the shorter Form 2106-EZ instead of Form 2106 if you meet all of the following conditions. 1040x forms online You are an employee deducting expenses attributable to your job. 1040x forms online You were not reimbursed by your employer for your expenses (amounts included in box 1 of your Form W-2 are not considered reimbursements). 1040x forms online If you claim car expenses, you use the standard mileage rate. 1040x forms online   For more information on how to report your expenses on Forms 2106 and 2106-EZ, see Completing Forms 2106 and 2106-EZ , later. 1040x forms online Gifts. 1040x forms online   If you did not receive any reimbursements (or the reimbursements were all included in box 1 of your Form W-2), the only business expense you are claiming is for gifts, and the Special Rules discussed later do not apply to you, do not complete Form 2106 or 2106-EZ. 1040x forms online Instead, claim the amount of your deductible gifts directly on line 21 of Schedule A (Form 1040). 1040x forms online Statutory employees. 1040x forms online    If you received a Form W-2 and the “Statutory employee” box in box 13 was checked, report your income and expenses related to that income on Schedule C (Form 1040) or Schedule C-EZ (Form 1040). 1040x forms online Do not complete Form 2106 or 2106-EZ. 1040x forms online   Statutory employees include full-time life insurance salespersons, certain agent or commission drivers, traveling salespersons, and certain homeworkers. 1040x forms online If you are entitled to a reimbursement from your employer but you do not claim it, you cannot claim a deduction for the expenses to which that unclaimed reimbursement applies. 1040x forms online Reimbursement for personal expenses. 1040x forms online    If your employer reimburses you for nondeductible personal expenses, such as for vacation trips, your employer must report the reimbursement as wage income in box 1 of your Form W-2. 1040x forms online You cannot deduct personal expenses. 1040x forms online Income-producing property. 1040x forms online   If you have travel or transportation expenses related to income-producing property, report your deductible expenses on the form appropriate for that activity. 1040x forms online   For example, if you have rental real estate income and expenses, report your expenses on Schedule E (Form 1040), Supplemental Income and Loss. 1040x forms online See Publication 527, Residential Rental Property, for more information on the rental of real estate. 1040x forms online If you have deductible investment-related transportation expenses, report them on Schedule A (Form 1040), line 23. 1040x forms online Vehicle Provided by Your Employer If your employer provides you with a car, you may be able to deduct the actual expenses of operating that car for business purposes. 1040x forms online The amount you can deduct depends on the amount that your employer included in your income and the business and personal miles you drove during the year. 1040x forms online You cannot use the standard mileage rate. 1040x forms online Value reported on Form W-2. 1040x forms online   Your employer can figure and report either the actual value of your personal use of the car or the value of the car as if you used it only for personal purposes (100% income inclusion). 1040x forms online Your employer must separately state the amount if 100% of the annual lease value was included in your income. 1040x forms online If you are unsure of the amount included on your Form W-2, ask your employer. 1040x forms online Full value included in your income. 1040x forms online   You can deduct the value of the business use of an employer-provided car if your employer reported 100% of the value of the car in your income. 1040x forms online On your 2013 Form W-2, the amount of the value will be included in box 1, Wages, tips, other compensation, and box 14. 1040x forms online    To claim your expenses, complete Form 2106, Part II, Sections A and C. 1040x forms online Enter your actual expenses on line 23 of Section C and include the entire value of the employer-provided car on line 25. 1040x forms online Complete the rest of the form. 1040x forms online Less than full value included in your income. 1040x forms online   If less than the full annual lease value of the car was included on your Form W-2, this means that your Form W-2 only includes the value of your personal use of the car. 1040x forms online Do not enter this value on your Form 2106 because it is not deductible. 1040x forms online   If you paid any actual costs (that your employer did not provide or reimburse you for) to operate the car, you can deduct the business portion of those costs. 1040x forms online Examples of costs that you may have are gas, oil, and repairs. 1040x forms online Complete Form 2106, Part II, Sections A and C. 1040x forms online Enter your actual costs on line 23 of Section C and leave line 25 blank. 1040x forms online Complete the rest of the form. 1040x forms online Reimbursements This section explains what to do when you receive an advance or are reimbursed for any of the employee business expenses discussed in this publication. 1040x forms online If you received an advance, allowance, or reimbursement for your expenses, how you report this amount and your expenses depends on whether your employer reimbursed you under an accountable plan or a nonaccountable plan. 1040x forms online This section explains the two types of plans, how per diem and car allowances simplify proving the amount of your expenses, and the tax treatment of your reimbursements and expenses. 1040x forms online It also covers rules for independent contractors. 1040x forms online No reimbursement. 1040x forms online   You are not reimbursed or given an allowance for your expenses if you are paid a salary or commission with the understanding that you will pay your own expenses. 1040x forms online In this situation, you have no reimbursement or allowance arrangement, and you do not have to read this section on reimbursements. 1040x forms online Instead, see Completing Forms 2106 and 2106-EZ , later, for information on completing your tax return. 1040x forms online Reimbursement, allowance, or advance. 1040x forms online   A reimbursement or other expense allowance arrangement is a system or plan that an employer uses to pay, substantiate, and recover the expenses, advances, reimbursements, and amounts charged to the employer for employee business expenses. 1040x forms online Arrangements include per diem and car allowances. 1040x forms online    A per diem allowance is a fixed amount of daily reimbursement your employer gives you for your lodging, meals, and incidental expenses when you are away from home on business. 1040x forms online (The term “ incidental expenses ” is defined in chapter 1 under Standard Meal Allowance. 1040x forms online ) A car allowance is an amount your employer gives you for the business use of your car. 1040x forms online   Your employer should tell you what method of reimbursement is used and what records you must provide. 1040x forms online Employers. 1040x forms online   If you are an employer and you reimburse employee business expenses, how you treat this reimbursement on your employee's Form W-2 depends in part on whether you have an accountable plan. 1040x forms online Reimbursements treated as paid under an accountable plan, as explained next, are not reported as pay. 1040x forms online Reimbursements treated as paid under nonaccountable plans , as explained later, are reported as pay. 1040x forms online See Publication 15 (Circular E), Employer's Tax Guide, for information on employee pay. 1040x forms online Accountable Plans To be an accountable plan, your employer's reimbursement or allowance arrangement must include all of the following rules: Your expenses must have a business connection — that is, you must have paid or incurred deductible expenses while performing services as an employee of your employer. 1040x forms online You must adequately account to your employer for these expenses within a reasonable period of time. 1040x forms online You must return any excess reimbursement or allowance within a reasonable period of time. 1040x forms online “ Adequate accounting ” and “ returning excess reimbursements ” are discussed later. 1040x forms online An excess reimbursement or allowance is any amount you are paid that is more than the business-related expenses that you adequately accounted for to your employer. 1040x forms online Reasonable period of time. 1040x forms online   The definition of reasonable period of time depends on the facts and circumstances of your situation. 1040x forms online However, regardless of the facts and circumstances of your situation, actions that take place within the times specified in the following list will be treated as taking place within a reasonable period of time. 1040x forms online You receive an advance within 30 days of the time you have an expense. 1040x forms online You adequately account for your expenses within 60 days after they were paid or incurred. 1040x forms online You return any excess reimbursement within 120 days after the expense was paid or incurred. 1040x forms online You are given a periodic statement (at least quarterly) that asks you to either return or adequately account for outstanding advances and you comply within 120 days of the statement. 1040x forms online Employee meets accountable plan rules. 1040x forms online   If you meet the three rules for accountable plans, your employer should not include any reimbursements in your income in box 1 of your Form W-2. 1040x forms online If your expenses equal your reimbursements, you do not complete Form 2106. 1040x forms online You have no deduction since your expenses and reimbursement are equal. 1040x forms online    If your employer included reimbursements in box 1 of your Form W-2 and you meet all the rules for accountable plans, ask your employer for a corrected Form W-2. 1040x forms online Accountable plan rules not met. 1040x forms online   Even though you are reimbursed under an accountable plan, some of your expenses may not meet all three rules. 1040x forms online All reimbursements that fail to meet all three rules for accountable plans are generally treated as having been reimbursed under a nonaccountable plan (discussed later). 1040x forms online Failure to return excess reimbursements. 1040x forms online   If you are reimbursed under an accountable plan, but you fail to return, within a reasonable time, any amounts in excess of the substantiated amounts, the amounts paid in excess of the substantiated expenses are treated as paid under a nonaccountable plan. 1040x forms online See Reasonable period of time , earlier, and Returning Excess Reimbursements , later. 1040x forms online Reimbursement of nondeductible expenses. 1040x forms online   You may be reimbursed under your employer's accountable plan for expenses related to that employer's business, some of which are deductible as employee business expenses and some of which are not deductible. 1040x forms online The reimbursements you receive for the nondeductible expenses do not meet rule (1) for accountable plans, and they are treated as paid under a nonaccountable plan. 1040x forms online Example. 1040x forms online Your employer's plan reimburses you for travel expenses while away from home on business and also for meals when you work late at the office, even though you are not away from home. 1040x forms online The part of the arrangement that reimburses you for the nondeductible meals when you work late at the office is treated as paid under a nonaccountable plan. 1040x forms online The employer makes the decision whether to reimburse employees under an accountable plan or a nonaccountable plan. 1040x forms online If you are an employee who receives payments under a nonaccountable plan, you cannot convert these amounts to payments under an accountable plan by voluntarily accounting to your employer for the expenses and voluntarily returning excess reimbursements to the employer. 1040x forms online Adequate Accounting One of the rules for an accountable plan is that you must adequately account to your employer for your expenses. 1040x forms online You adequately account by giving your employer a statement of expense, an account book, a diary, or a similar record in which you entered each expense at or near the time you had it, along with documentary evidence (such as receipts) of your travel, mileage, and other employee business expenses. 1040x forms online (See Table 5-1 in chapter 5 for details you need to enter in your record and documents you need to prove certain expenses. 1040x forms online ) A per diem or car allowance satisfies the adequate accounting requirement under certain conditions. 1040x forms online See Per Diem and Car Allowances , later. 1040x forms online You must account for all amounts you received from your employer during the year as advances, reimbursements, or allowances. 1040x forms online This includes amounts you charged to your employer by credit card or other method. 1040x forms online You must give your employer the same type of records and supporting information that you would have to give to the IRS if the IRS questioned a deduction on your return. 1040x forms online You must pay back the amount of any reimbursement or other expense allowance for which you do not adequately account or that is more than the amount for which you accounted. 1040x forms online Per Diem and Car Allowances If your employer reimburses you for your expenses using a per diem or a car allowance, you can generally use the allowance as proof for the amount of your expenses. 1040x forms online A per diem or car allowance satisfies the adequate accounting requirements for the amount of your expenses only if all the following conditions apply. 1040x forms online Your employer reasonably limits payments of your expenses to those that are ordinary and necessary in the conduct of the trade or business. 1040x forms online The allowance is similar in form to and not more than the federal rate (defined later). 1040x forms online You prove the time (dates), place, and business purpose of your expenses to your employer (as explained in Table 5-1 ) within a reasonable period of time. 1040x forms online You are not related to your employer (as defined next). 1040x forms online If you are related to your employer, you must be able to prove your expenses to the IRS even if you have already adequately accounted to your employer and returned any excess reimbursement. 1040x forms online If the IRS finds that an employer's travel allowance practices are not based on reasonably accurate estimates of travel costs (including recognition of cost differences in different areas for per diem amounts), you will not be considered to have accounted to your employer. 1040x forms online In this case, you must be able to prove your expenses to the IRS. 1040x forms online Related to employer. 1040x forms online   You are related to your employer if: Your employer is your brother or sister, half brother or half sister, spouse, ancestor, or lineal descendant, Your employer is a corporation in which you own, directly or indirectly, more than 10% in value of the outstanding stock, or Certain relationships (such as grantor, fiduciary, or beneficiary) exist between you, a trust, and your employer. 1040x forms online You may be considered to indirectly own stock, for purposes of (2), if you have an interest in a corporation, partnership, estate, or trust that owns the stock or if a member of your family or your partner owns the stock. 1040x forms online The federal rate. 1040x forms online   The federal rate can be figured using any one of the following methods. 1040x forms online For per diem amounts: The regular federal per diem rate. 1040x forms online The standard meal allowance. 1040x forms online The high-low rate. 1040x forms online For car expenses: The standard mileage rate. 1040x forms online A fixed and variable rate (FAVR). 1040x forms online    For per diem amounts, use the rate in effect for the area where you stop for sleep or rest. 1040x forms online Regular federal per diem rate. 1040x forms online   The regular federal per diem rate is the highest amount that the federal government will pay to its employees for lodging, meals, and incidental expenses (or meals and incidental expenses only) while they are traveling away from home in a particular area. 1040x forms online The rates are different for different locations. 1040x forms online Your employer should have these rates available. 1040x forms online You can also find federal per diem rates at www. 1040x forms online gsa. 1040x forms online gov/perdiem. 1040x forms online The standard meal allowance. 1040x forms online   The standard meal allowance (discussed in chapter 1) is the federal rate for meals and incidental expenses (M&IE). 1040x forms online The rate for most small localities in the United States is $46 a day. 1040x forms online Most major cities and many other localities qualify for higher rates. 1040x forms online You can find this information on the Internet at www. 1040x forms online gsa. 1040x forms online gov/perdiem. 1040x forms online   You receive an allowance only for meals and incidental expenses when your employer does one of the following. 1040x forms online Provides you with lodging (furnishes it in kind). 1040x forms online Reimburses you, based on your receipts, for the actual cost of your lodging. 1040x forms online Pays the hotel, motel, etc. 1040x forms online , directly for your lodging. 1040x forms online Does not have a reasonable belief that you had (or will have) lodging expenses, such as when you stay with friends or relatives or sleep in the cab of your truck. 1040x forms online Figures the allowance on a basis similar to that used in computing your compensation, such as number of hours worked or miles traveled. 1040x forms online High-low rate. 1040x forms online   This is a simplified method of computing the federal per diem rate for travel within the continental United States. 1040x forms online It eliminates the need to keep a current list of the per diem rates for each city. 1040x forms online   Under the high-low method, the per diem amount for travel during January through September of 2013 is $242 (including $65 for M&IE) for certain high-cost locations. 1040x forms online All other areas have a per diem amount of $163 (including $52 for M&IE). 1040x forms online For more information, see Notice 2012-63, which can be found on the Internet at www. 1040x forms online irs. 1040x forms online gov/irb/2012-42_IRB/ar12. 1040x forms online html. 1040x forms online    Effective October 1, 2013, the per diem rate for certain high-cost locations increased to $251 (including $65 for M&IE). 1040x forms online The rate for all other locations increased to $170 (including $52 for M&IE). 1040x forms online Employers who did not use the high-low method during the first 9 months of 2013 cannot begin to use it before 2014. 1040x forms online For more information, see Notice 2013-65, which can be found on the Internet at www. 1040x forms online irs. 1040x forms online gov/pub/irs-drop/n-13–65. 1040x forms online pdf and Revenue Procedure 2011-47 at www. 1040x forms online irs. 1040x forms online gov/irb/2011-42_IRB/ar12. 1040x forms online html. 1040x forms online Prorating the standard meal allowance on partial days of travel. 1040x forms online   The standard meal allowance is for a full 24-hour day of travel. 1040x forms online If you travel for part of a day, such as on the days you depart and return, you must prorate the full-day M&IE rate. 1040x forms online This rule also applies if your employer uses the regular federal per diem rate or the high-low rate. 1040x forms online   You can use either of the following methods to figure the federal M&IE for that day. 1040x forms online Method 1: For the day you depart, add 3/4 of the standard meal allowance amount for that day. 1040x forms online For the day you return, add 3/4 of the standard meal allowance amount for the preceding day. 1040x forms online Method 2: Prorate the standard meal allowance using any method you consistently apply in accordance with reasonable business practice. 1040x forms online For example, an employer can treat 2 full days of per diem (that includes M&IE) paid for travel away from home from 9 a. 1040x forms online m. 1040x forms online of one day to 5 p. 1040x forms online m. 1040x forms online of the next day as being no more than the federal rate. 1040x forms online This is true even though a federal employee would be limited to a reimbursement of M&IE for only 1½ days of the federal M&IE rate. 1040x forms online The standard mileage rate. 1040x forms online   This is a set rate per mile that you can use to compute your deductible car expenses. 1040x forms online For 2013, the standard mileage rate for the cost of operating your car for business use is 56½ cents per mile. 1040x forms online Fixed and variable rate (FAVR). 1040x forms online   This is an allowance your employer may use to reimburse your car expenses. 1040x forms online Under this method, your employer pays an allowance that includes a combination of payments covering fixed and variable costs, such as a cents-per-mile rate to cover your variable operating costs (such as gas, oil, etc. 1040x forms online ) plus a flat amount to cover your fixed costs (such as depreciation (or lease payments), insurance, etc. 1040x forms online ). 1040x forms online If your employer chooses to use this method, your employer will request the necessary records from you. 1040x forms online Reporting your expenses with a per diem or car allowance. 1040x forms online   If your reimbursement is in the form of an allowance received under an accountable plan, the following facts affect your reporting. 1040x forms online The federal rate. 1040x forms online Whether the allowance or your actual expenses were more than the federal rate. 1040x forms online The following discussions explain where to report your expenses depending upon how the amount of your allowance compares to the federal rate. 1040x forms online Allowance less than or equal to the federal rate. 1040x forms online   If your allowance is less than or equal to the federal rate, the allowance will not be included in box 1 of your Form W-2. 1040x forms online You do not need to report the related expenses or the allowance on your return if your expenses are equal to or less than the allowance. 1040x forms online   However, if your actual expenses are more than your allowance, you can complete Form 2106 and deduct the excess amount on Schedule A (Form 1040). 1040x forms online If you are using actual expenses, you must be able to prove to the IRS the total amount of your expenses and reimbursements for the entire year. 1040x forms online If you are using the standard meal allowance or the standard mileage rate, you do not have to prove that amount. 1040x forms online Example 1. 1040x forms online In April, Jeremy takes a 2-day business trip to Denver. 1040x forms online The federal rate for Denver is $215 per day. 1040x forms online As required by his employer's accountable plan, he accounts for the time (dates), place, and business purpose of the trip. 1040x forms online His employer reimburses him $215 a day ($430 total) for living expenses. 1040x forms online Jeremy's living expenses in Denver are not more than $215 a day. 1040x forms online Jeremy's employer does not include any of the reimbursement on his Form W-2 and Jeremy does not deduct the expenses on his return. 1040x forms online Example 2. 1040x forms online In June, Matt takes a 2-day business trip to Boston. 1040x forms online Matt's employer uses the high-low method to reimburse employees. 1040x forms online Since Boston is a high-cost area, Matt is given an advance of $242 a day ($484 total) for his lodging, meals, and incidental expenses. 1040x forms online Matt's actual expenses totaled $700. 1040x forms online Since Matt's $700 of expenses are more than his $484 advance, he includes the excess expenses when he itemizes his deductions. 1040x forms online Matt completes Form 2106 (showing all of his expenses and reimbursements). 1040x forms online He must also allocate his reimbursement between his meals and other expenses as discussed later under Completing Forms 2106 and 2106-EZ . 1040x forms online Example 3. 1040x forms online Nicole drives 10,000 miles in 2013 for business. 1040x forms online Under her employer's accountable plan, she accounts for the time (dates), place, and business purpose of each trip. 1040x forms online Her employer pays her a mileage allowance of 40 cents a mile. 1040x forms online Since Nicole's $5,650 expense computed under the standard mileage rate (10,000 miles x 56½ cents) is more than her $4,000 reimbursement (10,000 miles × 40 cents), she itemizes her deductions to claim the excess expense. 1040x forms online Nicole completes Form 2106 (showing all her expenses and reimbursements) and enters $1,650 ($5,650 − $4,000) as an itemized deduction. 1040x forms online Allowance more than the federal rate. 1040x forms online   If your allowance is more than the federal rate, your employer must include the allowance amount up to the federal rate in box 12 of your Form W-2. 1040x forms online This amount is not taxable. 1040x forms online However, the excess allowance will be included in box 1 of your Form W-2. 1040x forms online You must report this part of your allowance as if it were wage income. 1040x forms online   If your actual expenses are less than or equal to the federal rate, you do not complete Form 2106 or claim any of your expenses on your return. 1040x forms online   However, if your actual expenses are more than the federal rate, you can complete Form 2106 and deduct those excess expenses. 1040x forms online You must report on Form 2106 your reimbursements up to the federal rate (as shown in box 12 of your Form W-2) and all your expenses. 1040x forms online You should be able to prove these amounts to the IRS. 1040x forms online Example 1. 1040x forms online Laura lives and works in Austin. 1040x forms online In July her employer sent her to Albuquerque for 4 days on business. 1040x forms online Laura's employer paid the hotel directly for her lodging and reimbursed Laura $65 a day ($260 total) for meals and incidental expenses. 1040x forms online Laura's actual meal expenses were not more than the federal rate for Albuquerque, which is $56 per day. 1040x forms online Table 6-1. 1040x forms online

Forms 2106 and 2106-EZ . 1040x forms online Her employer included the $36 that was more than the federal rate (($65 − $56) × 4) in box 1 of Laura's Form W-2. 1040x forms online Her employer shows $224 ($56 a day × 4) in box 12 of her Form W-2. 1040x forms online This amount is not included in Laura's income. 1040x forms online Laura does not have to complete Form 2106; however, she must include the $36 in her gross income as wages (by reporting the total amount shown in box 1 of her Form W-2). 1040x forms online Example 2. 1040x forms online Joe also lives in Austin and works for the same employer as Laura. 1040x forms online In May the employer sent Joe to San Diego for 4 days and paid the hotel directly for Joe's hotel bill. 1040x forms online The employer reimbursed Joe $75 a day for his meals and incidental expenses. 1040x forms online The federal rate for San Diego is $71 a day. 1040x forms online Joe can prove that his actual meal expenses totaled $380. 1040x forms online His employer's accountable plan will not pay more than $75 a day for travel to San Diego, so Joe does not give his employer the records that prove that he actually spent $380. 1040x forms online However, he does account for the time, place, and business purpose of the trip. 1040x forms online This is Joe's only business trip this year. 1040x forms online Joe was reimbursed $300 ($75 × 4 days), which is $16 more than the federal rate of $284 ($71 × 4 days). 1040x forms online The employer includes the $16 as income on Joe's Form W-2 in box 1. 1040x forms online The employer also enters $284 in box 12 of Joe's Form W-2. 1040x forms online Joe completes Form 2106 to figure his deductible expenses. 1040x forms online He enters the total of his actual expenses for the year ($380) on Form 2106. 1040x forms online He also enters the reimbursements that were not included in his income ($284). 1040x forms online His total deductible expense, before the 50% limit, is $96. 1040x forms online After he figures the 50% limit on his unreimbursed meals and entertainment, he will include the balance, $48, as an itemized deduction. 1040x forms online Example 3. 1040x forms online Debbie drives 10,000 miles in 2013 for business. 1040x forms online Under her employer's accountable plan, she gets reimbursed 60 cents a mile, which is more than the standard mileage rate. 1040x forms online Her total reimbursement is $6,000. 1040x forms online Debbie's employer must include the reimbursement amount up to the standard mileage rate, $5,650 (10,000 × 56½ cents), in box 12 of her Form W-2. 1040x forms online That amount is not taxable. 1040x forms online Her employer must also include $350 ($6,000 − $5,650) in box 1 of her Form W-2. 1040x forms online This is the reimbursement that is more than the standard mileage rate. 1040x forms online If Debbie's expenses are equal to or less than the standard mileage rate, she would not complete Form 2106. 1040x forms online If her expenses are more than the standard mileage rate, she would complete Form 2106 and report her total expenses and reimbursement (shown in box 12 of her Form W-2). 1040x forms online She would then claim the excess expenses as an itemized deduction. 1040x forms online Returning Excess Reimbursements Under an accountable plan, you are required to return any excess reimbursement or other expense allowances for your business expenses to the person paying the reimbursement or allowance. 1040x forms online Excess reimbursement means any amount for which you did not adequately account within a reasonable period of time. 1040x forms online For example, if you received a travel advance and you did not spend all the money on business-related expenses or you do not have proof of all your expenses, you have an excess reimbursement. 1040x forms online “ Adequate accounting ” and “ reasonable period of time ” were discussed earlier in this chapter. 1040x forms online Travel advance. 1040x forms online   You receive a travel advance if your employer provides you with an expense allowance before you actually have the expense, and the allowance is reasonably expected to be no more than your expense. 1040x forms online Under an accountable plan, you are required to adequately account to your employer for this advance and to return any excess within a reasonable period of time. 1040x forms online   If you do not adequately account for or do not return any excess advance within a reasonable period of time, the amount you do not account for or return will be treated as having been paid under a nonaccountable plan (discussed later). 1040x forms online Unproved amounts. 1040x forms online   If you do not prove that you actually traveled on each day for which you received a per diem or car allowance (proving the elements described in Table 5-1 ), you must return this unproved amount of the travel advance within a reasonable period of time. 1040x forms online If you do not do this, the unproved amount will be considered paid under a nonaccountable plan (discussed later). 1040x forms online Per diem allowance more than federal rate. 1040x forms online   If your employer's accountable plan pays you an allowance that is higher than the federal rate, you do not have to return the difference between the two rates for the period you can prove business-related travel expenses. 1040x forms online However, the difference will be reported as wages on your Form W-2. 1040x forms online This excess amount is considered paid under a nonaccountable plan (discussed later). 1040x forms online Example. 1040x forms online Your employer sends you on a 5-day business trip to Phoenix in March 2013 and gives you a $400 ($80 × 5 days) advance to cover your meals and incidental expenses. 1040x forms online The federal per diem for meals and incidental expenses for Phoenix is $71. 1040x forms online Your trip lasts only 3 days. 1040x forms online Under your employer's accountable plan, you must return the $160 ($80 × 2 days) advance for the 2 days you did not travel. 1040x forms online For the 3 days you did travel you do not have to return the $27 difference between the allowance you received and the federal rate for Phoenix (($80 − $71) × 3 days). 1040x forms online However, the $27 will be reported on your Form W-2 as wages. 1040x forms online Nonaccountable Plans A nonaccountable plan is a reimbursement or expense allowance arrangement that does not meet one or more of the three rules listed earlier under Accountable Plans. 1040x forms online In addition, even if your employer has an accountable plan, the following payments will be treated as being paid under a nonaccountable plan: Excess reimbursements you fail to return to your employer, and Reimbursement of nondeductible expenses related to your employer's business. 1040x forms online See Reimbursement of nondeductible expenses , earlier, under Accountable Plans. 1040x forms online An arrangement that repays you for business expenses by reducing the amount reported as your wages, salary, or other pay will be treated as a nonaccountable plan. 1040x forms online This is because you are entitled to receive the full amount of your pay whether or not you have any business expenses. 1040x forms online If you are not sure if the reimbursement or expense allowance arrangement is an accountable or nonaccountable plan, ask your employer. 1040x forms online Reporting your expenses under a nonaccountable plan. 1040x forms online   Your employer will combine the amount of any reimbursement or other expense allowance paid to you under a nonaccountable plan with your wages, salary, or other pay. 1040x forms online Your employer will report the total in box 1 of your Form W-2. 1040x forms online    You must complete Form 2106 or 2106-EZ and itemize your deductions to deduct your expenses for travel, transportation, meals, or entertainment. 1040x forms online Your meal and entertainment expenses will be subject to the 50% limit discussed in chapter 2. 1040x forms online Also, your total expenses will be subject to the 2%-of-adjusted-gross-income limit that applies to most miscellaneous itemized deductions. 1040x forms online Example 1. 1040x forms online Kim's employer gives her $1,000 a month ($12,000 total for the year) for her business expenses. 1040x forms online Kim does not have to provide any proof of her expenses to her employer, and Kim can keep any funds that she does not spend. 1040x forms online Kim is being reimbursed under a nonaccountable plan. 1040x forms online Her employer will include the $12,000 on Kim's Form W-2 as if it were wages. 1040x forms online If Kim wants to deduct her business expenses, she must complete Form 2106 or 2106-EZ and itemize her deductions. 1040x forms online Example 2. 1040x forms online Kevin is paid $2,000 a month by his employer. 1040x forms online On days that he travels away from home on business, his employer designates $50 a day of his salary as paid to reimburse his travel expenses. 1040x forms online Because his employer would pay Kevin his monthly salary whether or not he was traveling away from home, the arrangement is a nonaccountable plan. 1040x forms online No part of the $50 a day designated by his employer is treated as paid under an accountable plan. 1040x forms online Rules for Independent Contractors and Clients This section provides rules for independent contractors who incur expenses on behalf of a client or customer. 1040x forms online The rules cover the reporting and substantiation of certain expenses discussed in this publication, and they affect both independent contractors and their clients or

forms online   For information on how to report expenses on your tax return, see Self-employed at the beginning of this chapter. 1040x forms online Required Records for Clients or Customers If you are a client or customer, you generally do not have to keep records to prove the reimbursements or allowances you give, in the course of your business, to an independent contractor for travel or gift expenses incurred on your behalf. 1040x forms online However, you must keep records if: You reimburse the contractor for entertainment expenses incurred on your behalf, and The contractor adequately accounts to you for these expenses. 1040x forms online Contractor adequately accounts. 1040x forms online   If the contractor adequately accounts to you for entertainment expenses, you (the client or customer) must keep records documenting each element of the expense, as explained in chapter 5 . 1040x forms online Use your records as proof for a deduction on your tax return. 1040x forms online If entertainment expenses are accounted for separately, you are subject to the 50% limit on entertainment. 1040x forms online If the contractor adequately accounts to you for reimbursed amounts, you do not have to report the amounts on an information return. 1040x forms online Contractor does not adequately account. 1040x forms online    If the contractor does not adequately account to you for allowances or reimbursements of entertainment expenses, you do not have to keep records of these items. 1040x forms online You are not subject to the 50% limit on entertainment in this case. 1040x forms online You can deduct the reimbursements or allowances as payment for services if they are ordinary and necessary business expenses. 1040x forms online However, you must file Form 1099-MISC to report amounts paid to the independent contractor if the total of the reimbursements and any other fees is $600 or more during the calendar year. 1040x forms online How To Use Per Diem Rate Tables

$4,000 for car expenses). 1040x forms online Since the airfare allowance was clearly identified, Rob knows that $5,000 of the payment goes in Column A, line 7, of Form 2106. 1040x forms online To

HIRE Act: Questions and Answers for Employers

Under the Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment (HIRE) Act, enacted March 18, 2010, two new tax benefits are available to employers who hire certain previously unemployed workers (“qualified employees”).

The first, referred to as the payroll tax exemption, provides employers with an exemption from the employer’s 6.2 percent share of social security tax on wages paid to qualifying employees, effective for wages paid from March 19, 2010 through December 31, 2010.

In addition, for each qualified employee retained for at least 52 consecutive weeks, businesses will also be eligible for a general business tax credit, referred to as the new hire retention credit, of 6.2 percent of wages paid to the qualified employee over the 52 week period, up to a maximum credit of $1,000.
