This is a survey question for all working people who must travel a lot for work. I travel significantly for my job. My company however will only pay for meals when we travel overnight. It is a little annoying seeing as how I always seem to be in some podunk town just about every week. My coworkers and I are considering asking our boss to begin paying for our lunches when we travel out of town. We work in public accounting, and we put some feelers out and it appears that in our field, meals are not generally paid for unless the travel overnight. Cheap bastards! Is this standard in other fields? Any other CPAs with input on this?
