Revenue Ruling 63-77: The IRS specifies that reimbursements made to individuals by a prospective employer for expenses incurred in connection with travel for interviews are not considered wages for federal tax purposes.


I think that is why the payment is on the 1099 instead of a W2.

Wages usually refers to payments subject to Social Security, Medicare, etc.
