The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires that reimbursement for meals when you do not stay overnight is subject to income tax. Therefore, it must be added to your paycheck and paid through the payroll process. To claim for meals when not in overnight travel status complete the Taxable Meal Payment Request & Authorization Form and submit it along with your travel reimbursement request. In this case, receipts are required if reimbursement is claimed at the higher rate. For additional guidance consult the RF on line help system EPSS.
