Temporary Duty

Temporary duty is an assignment away from a trucker's main place of work that is in a single location, is realistically expected to last for less than one year, and does in fact last for one year or less. Typically, if a trucker falls under the definition of a temporary assignment, the trucker's tax home remains at his or her previous tax home while the trucker is away.  This means the truck driver can deduct travel expenses and M&IE expenses while away from the original location.
