meals and entertainment post #1  quote:



In 2006 I have done some freelance work and thus self employed. In some of my work I was doing some teacher training. The company contracting work to me paid me a fee plus all of my expenses. My question is are my meals 100% deductible since I was reimbursed for them? All I can see is I can claim 50%, but that don't seem right for my situation.

Thanks
Sourdo

You might check with a CPA or a tax consultant to be sure, but I think you cannot claim any business expense for meals since you were reimbursed for them.

sorry I didn't make this clear, but the amount I was paid included the expenses incured along with my fee, thus not being taxed on those expenses would be a "wash".

I will be checking with an accountant as its all confusing!

Thanks.
