Howdy: I am a regional airline pilot based in Kansas City. I am on reserve, which means I go where they need me to go. Most of the time I am not in Kansas City, which is my permenant domicile. Four the last four months I have been out of Kansas City. My company gives me $25 a day for per diem. None of the cities I go to have a per diem rate this low. ( I have looked this up)Most cities are around the $38 rate. I have heard that I can claim a dollar for dollar deduction for the difference of every day. The difference between $25 and $38/day a month is $390/mo. Does anybody have any info on this. Thank you. Mike.
