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” comes from.
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,
