If someone doesn’t understand what a “per day” allowance for food is there’s another issue here

like

Or if the person is really dumb. “Sally wants to buy 20 apples at one dollar per apple. Sally’s daddy gave her an allowance of 19 dollars a day. How many apples can sally buy? Answer = 19 apples. But remember boys and girls. You’ll need an itemized receipt to accompany your expense form for those apples or mommy will ask you to contact the store you bought them from to get one or she may reject your claim”

How much you can spend per day.

like

Spending allowance per day on approved items over and above transport and lodging.

“Yes, you get $160 a day to do with as you wish during the trip—BUT you gotta show receipts that clear state what you bought.”

Actually a tradition per diem is a set amount one gets paid for food and incidentals. If you have to show receipts then it is simply a meal allowance. You should never have to show receipts for a per diem. 🤓

Hey guys. I have a soon to be nonprofit church struggling because they already started services (collecting offerings too against my advice) before things were set with an EIN and they gave an event already planned out and are trying to find a way to spend and collect before the things are in order. They want to know if one of their small business owners can expense and collect then consider it a donation. Is this possible? Any advice or loopholes that are Legal and will avoid issues later on?

Real talk. My employer doesn’t offer 401K or any investment or tax-sheltered vehicles. That said—I have a side company I own but isn’t making income right now. Is it possible to invest in my own company, set up a 401K for myself there and get the 57K/year max contribution? Effectively, if I were to do this, the company would have me on payroll, contribute to 401K and ultimately take a loss.
