If you and your employees are traveling for business this summer, there are a number of considerations. Under tax law, in order to claim deductions, you must meet certain requirements for out-of-town business travel within the U.S. The rules apply if the business reasonably requires an overnight stay. The actual costs of travel (plane fare, cabs, etc.) are deductible for out-of-town business trips. You’re also allowed to deduct the cost of lodging. For 2023, the law allows a 50% deduction for business meals. If a trip is a combined business/pleasure trip, only the costs of meals, lodging, etc., incurred for the business days are deductible (not those incurred for personal vacation days).
