I made 79000 and the company has included the per diem in that so i actually made
71200 and 7800 per diem how can i get this fixed or have it deducted form my overall income thanks.
Report your actual per diem expenses, and report the reimbursement amount. If you report expenses equal to $7800, it will negate the extra income.
If you know the number of days you were out of town on a temporary assignment, you claim average per diem for food/lodging. Here's a link for more specific information:
If your actual expenses were greater than the $7800 you were reimbursed, you can claim the additional expense.
If you are a W-2 employee, this is reported under Employee Expenses; if a 1099-Misc employee, the per diem expenses would be self-employment expenses.
