Do I have to include my per diem as income if it doesn't show up on my W-2?

I am a over the road truck driver. The IRS allows 63.00 dollars per day for meals and misc. My employer pays .06 cents per mile per diem. This does not show up on my W-2, do I have to show this towards reimbursed expenses?

Yes, show it towards reimbursed expenses.

You'll enter your mileage and other expenses first:

1.  Click Federal on the left-hand side menu.

2.  Click Deductions & Credits across the top.

3.  Scroll down to Employment Expenses and click Show more.

4.  Click Start or Revisit by Job Expenses for W-2 Income.

Go through the entire section entering your numbers till you get to the two screens below, and enter reimbursements.
