Can company over the road truck drivers claim per diem on their 2018 tax return

If you are a W-2 employee in 2018, with the new tax law changes there is no longer an Employee Business Expense seduction, so No they cannot claim per Diem for being away overnight.

Only a owner operator (none W-2 employee) can claim this.
