Are you saying your travel expenses will show as income? If so that is not true

I have to deal with LTA tax as well. After one year on the same project in the same location your expenses count as part of your total salary. You avoid it by staying local for 30 consecutive days. PwC pays for the tax difference for us if you hit it. Deloitte should do the same I'd imagine.

Travel reimbursements are expenses to the company, they have no affect on your personal take home income, UNLESS you are receiving a living stipend, which is different than hotel, rental car, etc.(normal reimbursement expenses)

If you travel to same location for 365 days your expenses become taxable income - I think if it happens the firm should gross you up for the extra income.. if you break 60 days before you hit 366 then you get out of it - our team does staggered travel bans for people to avoid this. Even if they gross you up it can mess with student loans itemized phase out, etc so.. if possible better to not go through the reimbursement hassle

He maybe referring to state tax if you currently don’t pay state income? Otherwise any non salaries or bonus reimbursement such as food, Travel etc is not tax as income.

Alt travel used by others show up in grossed Income. Rest should not show up as added Income like others mentioned here. What travel Income are you talking abt OP? Deloitte doespay your difference in state taxes too ( if any)

As far as my knowledge goes..may be i am wrong...if i travel for 1 year to same location i am eligible for LTT. Also all expense i make like booking hotel etc gets added to my income. I was told by some senior con. Basically my salary will look like 160k plus instwad of less than 90k... now this means I fall in higher tax bracket. So will my original salary also be taxed in new tax bracket. Or will deloitte refund me that too.

Your expenses wont be added to your income. You will receive an email to see if you qualify for LTT. I received one just this week

Yea i did too And I qualify for it

Man call the damn people at your firm who can set you up properly for this. Why are you taking advice from a senior (or even FB) about something that is potentially creating a 5 figure tax liability for you?

Take a tax break. Double check tax rules, but I think it’s Work from home for 30 consecutive days to avoid getting taxed on travel expense
