Where would I add perdium

Here is where to enter them:

Where do I enter job-related employee expenses? (Form 2106)


If that doesn't work for you, you can get to the correct area as follows:

  • Federal Taxes tab (Personal tab In the Home & Business version)
  • Deductions and Credits
  • scroll down to Employment Expenses
  • then, Job Expenses

If you are an employee receiving a W-2, they would be Unreimbursed Employee Business Expenses that goes onto Schedule A Itemized Deductions. If you don't normally itemize and use the Standard Deduction, then it may not benefit you unless your expenses are high enough.  Also, only the amount over 2% of your Adjusted Gross income will go onto the Schedule A.Travel, Per Diem, and More

 If you are OTR, the standard meal allowance for 2016 is $63 a day ($68 for travel outside the continental United States). This is for overnight travel.
