Does anyone actually expense their alt travel as "taxable reimbursement" like you're supposed to?

I didn't and used to do it every other weekend (long distance relationship) but I guess I did it too much and so they audited me...and had to pay the taxes on ALL the travel i hadn't claimed. They let me split the tax bill over four pay periods but it was thousands of dollars each month...and I was just a poor little associate so destroyed my paycheck.


Yes, they caught it through firm expense audit


I just flex my arm

PwC 3, who audited you? The firm?

Deloitte grosses up the tax for personal alt travel. The only tax you have to pay for is if you fly someone else

@P3 damn, you must have been taking wildly more expensive flex trips..

It was every other weekend for basically the entire 6 month period they audited....

Damn. Shut down. @pwc3

A mask or THE mask?
I’m a non-native speaker and I’m wondering why some people say “please wear THE mask” instead of “please wear A mask”. To me it’s just an item so A mask should be appropriate and not “the”.
Any insights?:p


First time luxury car buyer. Really liked a Macan I test drove yesterday. It was a corporate pre-owned car and not “certified pre-owned” by Porsche. It was certified by the dealer. Are pre-owned and certified pre-owned similar? With only ~5k miles I’m thinking it shouldn’t be a big difference. Would love insights from anyone who’s done this before!
