As part of its National Research Program begun in 2010, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has examined tax returns of thousands of small, medium-sized and large businesses looking for areas of under-compliance and under-taxation. These special audits focused on several areas of concern including the following:
- Worker misclassification
- Fringe benefits
- Officers’ compensation
- Employee expense reimbursement plans
Scrutiny of employee expense reimbursement has focused on employer reimbursements that have not been taxed as income, including the following:
- Tool and equipment expenses
- Travel expenses, including airplane tickets and train tickets
- Hotel expenses
The IRS expects employers to have accountable plans in place to keep close tabs on expense reimbursement, protect reasonable expense reimbursement and prevent abuse in this area.
