Elimination of meal deduction.

#1
It has been widely reported that the GOP tax reform currently being worked on has the elimination of teachers deducting expense of supplies bought for classes taught. What has not been reported is the elemination of allowing truckers to deduct cost of meals when away from home.

Independent O/O running own business currently write off meals on the road as an expense. We do not get per diem.

1. Teachers don’t need to be purchasing things on their own and then writing it off. If it’s for school, it needs to go through the school for multiple reasons.

2. Where is all of this listed? I have yet to see documentation of this.
