I am a contractor that travels and does not get reimbursed for meals. I want to use the GSA per diem rates in Schedule-C for dates I am on a project, but I cannot find how to record this in QB Self-Employed. Do I not have the appropriate QB to record this?
I'd like to take this opportunity to share some information on how to record your meal expenses in QuickBooks.
To start with, QuickBooks Self-Employed is used to track your self-employed business related transactions. Currently, the ability to track your meal expenses using GSA Per Diem rate is not yet available.
For you to be guided accurately in deciding the proper categories for your transactions, I'd suggest consulting with your accountant. You can also visit TurboTax AnswerXchange for tax-related questions.
