Seasonal End Date

The seasonal end date marks a time of year where a set of per diem rates is no longer valid.  This aplies to trucker who use the city-by-city method of calculating M&IE.  It differs from the expiration date because the seasonal end date is just a month and a day (like Feb. 15 instead of Feb 15, 2008).  Basically, the per diem rates often change throughout the year for any given city, and the seasonal end date marks the last day that a set of per diem rates is valid during the year.  It is important to note the effective date, expiration date, seasonal start date, and seasonal end date when calculating the per diem deduction.
