We're stumped on this one....here's the scoop:We currently live in an AZ apartment. We also are on the title to a house in AZ & have a mortgage on it(retired parents live there though). We've both been offered 1yr+ contract jobs in VA/Washington DC area and the jobshops want to pay us some of the hourly contract rate as "per diem".Here's the question: How much can we take as per diem and for how long?We don't know what we will do after a year if we take positions in DC. We may just stay there a while...We've heard rumors (from other contractors) that you can take per-diem for one year only, but is it true and is it a tax year or 12 months? On the amount, do we have to limit it to US govt "CONUS" numbers & do we keep receipts for every trip to the gas station or McDonald's?The US treas web site is particularly confusing. We looked at pub 1524, but that just shows the CONUS rates...no answers! We're drowning in numbers....-- drowning in the desertb&r katz
