Leave Travel Allowance

Dear team,


Recently i had travelled from Mumbai to Cochin and returned from Trivandrum to Mumbai by air visiting multiple places in Kerala.

I have googled many artilces saying that if the journey is performed in a circular manner, then amount till the farthest distance by shortest route is allowed.

However, I am not able to find the same in income tax act (Sec 10(5)) or rules (Rule 2B). Can you give me exact reference to case law / Notification / etc?

Regards,
Swapnil Nirmal

Reimbursement of Local Travel Expenses

by Karen
(Washington,DC)

My employer is holding a 4 day meeting within 50 miles of my home and my employment office.
I will be provided with lodging (comp'ed by the hotel).

I will be expected to be available for more than 12 hours each day.

Can my employer provide me with per diem to cover meals and incidentals for those 4 days?

Travel to Another State to Keep Job

I accepted a job where the company requires me to be in Newark, NJ a week per month because there are no local job that fit my skill set. I kept my residence in Florida and to keep the hotel expense low, I rented a single bedroom apartment and commuted to Florida by plane. The rented apartment needs a bed, internet, utilities and some desk and chair since I work at night as well. The bed was somewhat expensive since I have a very bad lower back (disability documented) and had to buy a special bed.

The company do not reimburse for my travel to Newark but I have to be there a week per month. It's required for me to keep my job. Can I claim these on my taxes for unreimbursed expenses - lodging, plane fares and the meals while I'm up in Newark? I don't always go out to eat but go to grocery stores and prepare my own meals. I have the grocery receipts, can these be included as well?

Travel Trailer

by Jonathan
(Santa Clarita, California)

I'm buying a travel trailer and would like to know if I should lump the tax and registration into the loan amount or if it would be better to pay them seperate?
Thank you.
