|Subject: No taxes on Per Diem billed to customer?||Date: 1/11/2005 11:30 PM|

This may be a little off topic for this board but here goes...
I am a self employed consultant who was told by a potential customer that if I line item invoice them for travel expenses at the local per-diem rate ($145/day for lodging and meals according to IRS charts) they will not report it to the IRS as they would the regular 1099 income for hourly services delivered. The implication is that I won't owe taxes on the per-diem reimbursables.
Is this possible?
Thanks in advance!
