The IRS Fails its Own Reimbursement Policy

Recently, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) reviewed the IRS due diligence efforts in tracking employees potentially engaged in temporary assignments greater than a year and whether their travel reimbursements were treated as taxable income in those situations.

They are not doing the best job and partly due to confusion about the rules among the supervisors. They did however, find that the IRS had established adequate guidance on when travel reimbursements are taxable – in other words, there wasn’t an excuse 🙂
