TRAVEL RECEIPTS:

 Submitting Proper Documentation

Original receipts are required for ALL expenses EXCEPT for the following:

  • Meals associated with overnight travel claimed under the per diem method
  • Personal auto mileage reimbursed at the current IRS rate
  • Miscellaneous expenses that are less than $75

Miscellaneous expenses are travel-related expenses such as local transportation, mail, fax, phone, internet hotel charges, entrance fees, etc.

Lodging and transportation to and from your destination (air, train, rental car) are NOT miscellaneous expenses.

Hosted business meals require original, itemized receipts. These are not the credit card slips that you sign and add a tip to, but rather, a receipt that lists what was purchased, including beverages. You most likely will have to ask specifically for an itemized receipt from your server or the restaurant.
