October 10, 2018

The IRS has issued clarification on the business expense deduction for meals and entertainment following changes to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ( TCJA).   


TCJA eliminates the deduction for any expenses related to activities generally considered entertainment, sporting events pop into to mind.  However, meals  can be deducted at a rate of 50% of the cost as long as an employee of the taxpayer is present and the food and/or beverage isn't considered lavish or extravagant. These meals can be provided to current or prospective clients.
