Reimbursements for actual business expenses are made in accordance with IRS requirements, most importantly the rules for an "Accountable Plan". An Accountable Plan limits reimbursement to business-related expenses substantiated by receipts or other verification. Any excess payments made to the employee must be returned to the employer in a timely manner.
Always verify reimbursement information and effective dates by reviewing the appropriate
Memorandum of Understanding and/or the CalHR Travel Rules.
Please contact the
CalHR Travel Manager if you have any questions.
