Seasonal Start Date

The seasonal start date marks a time of year where a set of per diem rates is valid.  This aplies to trucker who use the city-by-city method of calculating M&IEIt differs from the effective date because the seasonal start date is just a month and a day (like Jan. 26 instead of Jan. 26, 2008).  Basically, the per diem rates often change throughout the year, and the seasonal start date is the beginning date for a change in per diem rates.  It is important to note the effective date, expiration date, seasonal start date, and seasonal end date when calculating the per diem deduction.
