Meal expenses 50 or 100% off?

If my meal expenses for travel were to continue a business relationship and it was mandatory that I attend, do I still only receive 50% expense discount?

The only time you do not have the 50% limit meals is if they are reimbursed by your employer. (which only means you are not taxed on 50% of the reimbursement)


Entertainment is no longer deductible starting tax year 2018.
