  • Change to USNH Travel Policy for items covered by IRS Meals & Incidental Expense per diem

Effective immediately, USNH employees reimbursed via the Federal meals and incidental expense per diem rate will no longer be able to claim tips. The Fringe Benefit Guide for Governmental Entities, recently released by IRS provides Federal, State and Local Government offices with guidance on Federal Tax rules related to business expenses and employee business travel. The guide provides clarification about the types of items covered under the IRS Federal Meals & Incidental Expense (M&IE) per diem rate. The M&IE per diem rate includes the following items: meals, tips (porters, baggage carriers, bellhops, hotel maids, food, etc.) and luggage-handling services. These tips are not be permitted as a separate business expense reimbursement when an employee receives a travel reimbursement via Federal M&IE rate.

The use of the M&IE per diem method for reimbursement means that the IRS substantiation requirement of a receipt for the listed items is met without an actual receipt. However the other substantiation components continue to be required, including date/time, place, and business purpose.

We have reviewed our travel policy and have made the necessary clarification for the tips included in IRS Federal M&IE per diem rate to the appropriate Travel policy sections:

Please distribute this important change to your employees who travel.
