My wife recently purchased a cell phone, which she uses mostly for her work as an IT consultant. The company reimburses her $50 per month but it appears that social security, medicare, and state (NY) taxes are being deducted from this reimbursement. Should cell phone reimbursements be taxable? For some reason I'm fooling myself into believing that social security and medicare should not be taken out for this, as well as state tax. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
