Per Diem

Per diem is a monetary allowance that a truck driver's employer might give the trucker to reimburse them for meals and incidental expenses that are incurred when they are on duty. 

There are two forms of per diem:

  1. Taxable per diem -  Included as gross income
  2. Non-taxable per diem - Strictly a reimbursement for M&IE expenses

The per diem rates used for the per diem deduction should not to be confused with the per diem provided by an employer to offset M&IE expenses.
