For three days in the month of April 2021, Mr. LGR was sent by his company from the municipality in which he resides and works to another, 500 km away, to carry out certain commercial procedures, with the payer proving such circumstances. He received 760 euros for per diem and transportation expenses, having spent two days of the trip overnight.
As proof of expenses, keep the round-trip plane ticket, the amount of which amounts to 210 euros, and the hotel bill, which amounts to 195 euros.
How much of the amount received as per diem and travel expenses should Mr. LGR declare? as full income for personal income tax purposes ?
Amount received = 760.00
Expenses exempt from tax:
- Locomotion: justified (airline ticket) = 210.00
- Stay: justified (hotel bill) = 195.00
- Support [(53.34 x 2) + 26.67] = 133.35
- Total = 538.35
Full taxable income: (760.00 - 538.35) = 221.65
