And all these taxes are only on his net business income, right? (He's going to be fronting travel expenses, then getting reimbursed -- I'd hate to think he has to pay Social Security and Medicare on the expense reimbursements!)---Actually, there is a caveat here I only recently caught onto. He must report the reimbursement as income, but gets to deduct his actual expenses. If they are equal, it is a wash (but still accounted for). Many companies charge a 10% markup on reimbursements for administrative costs and presumably for opportunity cost of fronting the money. If your husband can negotiate this, that extra 10% would be taxable income, but you'd still be ahead. It could also prompt the other company to pay for tickets and hotels up front.knight427
