Travel Pay: When to Pay It,
How to Pay It, and How to Tax It
Listen to this exciting topic!
Hear a Free 90-Second Travel Pay Clip from Speaker Mindy Harada:
Paying employees for their travel time—and dealing with subsequent reimbursements and deductions—is one of the most confusing parts of personnel administration.
Must you pay hourly employees for … a cab to the airport? … a drive to a second work site? … a flight to a conference?
What’s considered bona fide travel by the IRS?
When is your reimbursement payment for employees’ airfare, car and hotel no longer considered an allowable travel expense … but instead considered a “commute” (taxable wages)?
Our new audio recording Travel Pay: When to Pay It, How to Pay It, and How to Tax It explains IRS and DOL rules regarding what is considered “travel time” versus “commuting time,” plus what is an allowable expense versus taxable wages.
Mindy Harada, an employment tax expert and frequent speaker on this topic, will explain which workers are entitled to travel time pay and at what rate. She explains the tracking and paperwork necessary to compensate the traveling employee correctly.
Among the things Mindy will reveal:
When to pay nonexempt employees for their time spent traveling to and from company activities—and at the activity itself.
What does the IRS consider bona fide travel? (Mindy will address the rules for mileage, airfare, hotel and car rental.)
How quickly receipts must legally be provided by an employee, and how often expense reports must be submitted.
What’s considered a wage or a taxable commuting benefit.
What’s unpaid “commuting” time … and what are the IRS guidelines regarding commuting costs?
Common pay- and FLSA-related problems that arise with employee travel, such as meals during travel.
Plus answers to travel-pay questions from our interactive Q&A session.
Don’t get caught in an FLSA lawsuit or an audit of your employees’ travel expenses! Either one could be a huge expense and black mark on your record. Discover the proper steps NOW to pay and reimburse employees correctly for travel.
