View Full Version : CPZ W2 per diem

02-03-2018, 11:07 AM
Iím a CPZ alumni and left in June 2017. Got my 2017 W2 and in the top number for Per diem (Iím assuming thatís the taxed per diem), thereís no way I flew enough day trips to warrant $957.03. I commuted and held a line so it was all 3-5 day trips except for a handful of day trips.

Anyone else have an issue with theirs?

I believe it includes days in which you didn't leave the state, not just day trips.

The top number is taxable per diem. There was an issue with the IOCC cutover that caused any modified trip to be broken in day trips, i.e. your middle SAN turn canceled but you still went to your overnight, you now worked 3 day trips instead of one 3-day trip.

So you probably got shorted per diem and screwed with taxes. You can still write it off from a tax stand point though if you itemize.

WRT to aTomatoFlames, anytime youíre away from domicile for a night (more than 50 Miles) it automatically becomes tax deductible. If you do any overnight itís non tax per diem. The state doesnít matter.
