crank stuff about passive voice(where you nailed the situation) That info was from the contact agent who inspires less confidence than in my own opinion, thus the weasel passive voice. I only trusted his opinion to respect the GSA number although he had no idea if it was an absolute limit for total expenses versus some subset and wasn't interested in investigating further even though other 'contractor' employees consistently use 50% of their rate as per diem far exceeding the GSA number. ... Travel between an employee's home and workplace is nondeductible commuting expense. There is no per diem allowance in tax law for travel that doesn't leave you away from home overnight.If you actually take up temp quarters in a workplace while maintaining your primary residence, you may be eligible for a business-related travel expense. I don't know the IRS publication reference offhand, but if you look at the Schedule A instructions for employee business expenses they will lead you there.I can't do 8 hours of commute per day so I will maintain a second residence. It makes sense that I can't claim weekly commute expense AND claim 7 day per week of per diem. I will look at sched A per your guidance.Thank you very much, Phil.
