Travel Pay:
When to Pay It, How to Pay It, and How to Tax It

Business Travel

Paying employees for their travel time – and dealing with subsequent reimbursements and deductions – is one of the most confusing parts of HR and payroll administration. It's vital to know:

  • When you must pay hourly employees for a cab/Uber to the airport … a drive to a second worksite … or a flight to a conference
  • What's considered "bona fide travel" by the IRS
  • When your reimbursement payment for employees' airfare, car and hotel is no longer considered an allowable travel expense … but instead considered a "commute" (taxable wages)

Travel Pay: When to Pay It, How to Pay It, and How to Tax It – from the publishers of Payroll Legal Alert – will explain IRS and DOL rules regarding what is considered "travel time" versus "commuting time," plus what is an allowable expense versus taxable wages.
