We appreciate your interest in using our service and look forward
to serving you for many years to come! If you have any questions
about your report, please feel free to call. Our office welcomes
new clients and would appreciate you telling your friends and
co-workers about our service. We also process reports for previous
years for those of you interested in amending a previous year’s
income tax report. It is normally a simple two-page process, and
we will supply you with the necessary forms. Generally, you can
amend taxes for the previous three years, and it is usually well
worth the effort!
Message from the President
As you already know, our company specializes in computing the
maximum government allowed per diem rates you can claim on your
taxes for expenses without receipts. Our service provides you with
a detailed hard copy of your exact federal meal and incidental
allowance, so there is no guesswork as to where the "magic number”
We do a TRUE calculation, taking your actual flight times into
consideration. We don’t just do a rough work up of your layover
cities. Our clients see exactly the rates and times were used to
calculate each day of travel. Even more importantly, the IRS can
see EXACTLY how the figures were derived!
Our service is ideal for pilots and flight attendants because we
use only the meal and incidental portions of the published
government rates. The computer program we have written takes into
consideration the rules regarding the number of hours required for
layovers, various daylight savings times around the world,
adjustments necessary when crossing the international dateline and
flight times. These are correctly applied to the proper layover
city, including instances of multiple flight legs. If a rate for a
city is not available, we check to see if a county rate is
available rather than shorting you by giving you the “other” rate
for non listed cities.
Our breakdown is to the minute, keeping with standard business
practices in the airline industry, with the exception of your
first and last leg of travel in which we use 3/4 partial days as
required by law giving you the greatest tax savings possible.
Feedback from IRS employees has confirmed we have developed the
best printout possible to accompany your tax data. We know how
important it is to clear up any possible questions or problems
before they have a chance to occur. That is why we offer free IRS
support if you ever are under examination. We are proud of our
100% approval rating with the IRS. On the rare occasion a
Pro-Diem, Inc. client comes across an agent who is not familiar
with the specific rules regarding those in the transportation
industry, we are glad to explain the procedures and regulations
and complete any necessary forms, helping them gain approval.
Thank you for being a loyal client of Pro-Diem, Inc.
Wishing you Blue Skies,
