Per Diem

Money given to an employee to pay for daily expenses, for example on a business trip. For example, if the employee goes to a convention in Reno, his employer may give him $75 per day for food. If an employee (or self-employed person) pays these expenses himself/herself, they may be tax deductible. Some per diem rates are set; for instance, the IRS allows a certain write-off per diem for business trip expenses without presentation of receipts.
