H&r block 1040x online 5. H&r block 1040x online   Recordkeeping Table of Contents How To Prove ExpensesWhat Are Adequate Records? What If I Have Incomplete Records? Separating and Combining Expenses How Long To Keep Records and Receipts Examples of Records If you deduct travel, entertainment, gift, or transportation expenses, you must be able to prove (substantiate) certain elements of expense. H&r block 1040x online This chapter discusses the records you need to keep to prove these expenses. H&r block 1040x online If you keep timely and accurate records, you will have support to show the IRS if your tax return is ever examined. H&r block 1040x online You will also have proof of expenses that your employer may require if you are reimbursed under an accountable plan. H&r block 1040x online These plans are discussed in chapter 6 under Reimbursements . H&r block 1040x online How To Prove Expenses Table 5-1 is a summary of records you need to prove each expense discussed in this publication. H&r block 1040x online You must be able to prove the elements listed across the top portion of the chart. H&r block 1040x online You prove them by having the information and receipts (where needed) for the expenses listed in the first column. H&r block 1040x online You cannot deduct amounts that you approximate or estimate. H&r block 1040x online You should keep adequate records to prove your expenses or have sufficient evidence that will support your own statement. H&r block 1040x online You must generally prepare a written record for it to be considered adequate. H&r block 1040x online This is because written evidence is more reliable than oral evidence alone. H&r block 1040x online However, if you prepare a record on a computer, it is considered an adequate record. H&r block 1040x online What Are Adequate Records? You should keep the proof you need in an account book, diary, log, statement of expense, trip sheets, or similar record. H&r block 1040x online You should also keep documentary evidence that, together with your record, will support each element of an expense. H&r block 1040x online Documentary evidence. H&r block 1040x online   You generally must have documentary evidence, such as receipts, canceled checks, or bills, to support your expenses. H&r block 1040x online Exception. H&r block 1040x online   Documentary evidence is not needed if any of the following conditions apply. H&r block 1040x online You have meals or lodging expenses while traveling away from home for which you account to your employer under an accountable plan, and you use a per diem allowance method that includes meals and/or lodging. H&r block 1040x online ( Accountable plans and per diem allowances are discussed in chapter 6. H&r block 1040x online ) Your expense, other than lodging, is less than $75. H&r block 1040x online You have a transportation expense for which a receipt is not readily available. H&r block 1040x online Adequate evidence. H&r block 1040x online   Documentary evidence ordinarily will be considered adequate if it shows the amount, date, place, and essential character of the expense. H&r block 1040x online   For example, a hotel receipt is enough to support expenses for business travel if it has all of the following information. H&r block 1040x online The name and location of the hotel. H&r block 1040x online The dates you stayed there. H&r block 1040x online Separate amounts for charges such as lodging, meals, and telephone calls. H&r block 1040x online   A restaurant receipt is enough to prove an expense for a business meal if it has all of the following information. H&r block 1040x online The name and location of the restaurant. H&r block 1040x online The number of people served. H&r block 1040x online The date and amount of the expense. H&r block 1040x online If a charge is made for items other than food and beverages, the receipt must show that this is the case. H&r block 1040x online Canceled check. H&r block 1040x online   A canceled check, together with a bill from the payee, ordinarily establishes the cost. H&r block 1040x online However, a canceled check by itself does not prove a business expense without other evidence to show that it was for a business purpose. H&r block 1040x online Duplicate information. H&r block 1040x online   You do not have to record information in your account book or other record that duplicates information shown on a receipt as long as your records and receipts complement each other in an orderly manner. H&r block 1040x online   You do not have to record amounts your employer pays directly for any ticket or other travel item. H&r block 1040x online However, if you charge these items to your employer, through a credit card or otherwise, you must keep a record of the amounts you spend. H&r block 1040x online Timely-kept records. H&r block 1040x online   You should record the elements of an expense or of a business use at or near the time of the expense or use and support it with sufficient documentary evidence. H&r block 1040x online A timely-kept record has more value than a statement prepared later when generally there is a lack of accurate recall. H&r block 1040x online   You do not need to write down the elements of every expense on the day of the expense. H&r block 1040x online If you maintain a log on a weekly basis that accounts for use during the week, the log is considered a timely-kept record. H&r block 1040x online   If you give your employer, client, or customer an expense account statement, it can also be considered a timely-kept record. H&r block 1040x online This is true if you copy it from your account book, diary, log, statement of expense, trip sheets, or similar record. H&r block 1040x online Proving business purpose. H&r block 1040x online   You must generally provide a written statement of the business purpose of an expense. H&r block 1040x online However, the degree of proof varies according to the circumstances in each case. H&r block 1040x online If the business purpose of an expense is clear from the surrounding circumstances, then you do not need to give a written explanation. H&r block 1040x online Example. H&r block 1040x online If you are a sales representative who calls on customers on an established sales route, you do not have to give a written explanation of the business purpose for traveling that route. H&r block 1040x online You can satisfy the requirements by recording the length of the delivery route once, the date of each trip at or near the time of the trips, and the total miles you drove the car during the tax year. H&r block 1040x online You could also establish the date of each trip with a receipt, record of delivery, or other documentary evidence. H&r block 1040x online Confidential information. H&r block 1040x online   You do not need to put confidential information relating to an element of a deductible expense (such as the place, business purpose, or business relationship) in your account book, diary, or other record. H&r block 1040x online However, you do have to record the information elsewhere at or near the time of the expense and have it available to fully prove that element of the expense. H&r block 1040x online What If I Have Incomplete Records? If you do not have complete records to prove an element of an expense, then you must prove the element with: Your own written or oral statement containing specific information about the element, and Other supporting evidence that is sufficient to establish the element. H&r block 1040x online If the element is the description of a gift, or the cost, time, place, or date of an expense, the supporting evidence must be either direct evidence or documentary evidence. H&r block 1040x online Direct evidence can be written statements or the oral testimony of your guests or other witnesses setting forth detailed information about the element. H&r block 1040x online Documentary evidence can be receipts, paid bills, or similar evidence. H&r block 1040x online If the element is either the business relationship of your guests or the business purpose of the amount spent, the supporting evidence can be circumstantial rather than direct. H&r block 1040x online For example, the nature of your work, such as making deliveries, provides circumstantial evidence of the use of your car for business purposes. H&r block 1040x online Invoices of deliveries establish when you used the car for business. H&r block 1040x online Table 5-1. H&r block 1040x online How To Prove Certain Business Expenses IF you have expenses for . H&r block 1040x online . H&r block 1040x online THEN you must keep records that show details of the following elements . H&r block 1040x online . H&r block 1040x online . H&r block 1040x online   Amount Time Place or  Description Business Purpose Business Relationship Travel Cost of each separate expense for travel, lodging, and meals. H&r block 1040x online Incidental expenses may be totaled in reasonable categories such as taxis, fees and tips, etc. H&r block 1040x online Dates you left and returned for each trip and number of days spent on business. H&r block 1040x online Destination or area of your travel (name of city, town, or other designation). H&r block 1040x online Purpose: Business purpose for the expense or the business benefit gained or expected to be gained. H&r block 1040x online    Relationship: N/A Entertainment Cost of each separate expense. H&r block 1040x online Incidental expenses such as taxis, telephones, etc. H&r block 1040x online , may be totaled on a daily basis. H&r block 1040x online Date of entertainment. H&r block 1040x online (Also see Business Purpose. H&r block 1040x online ) Name and address or location of place of entertainment. H&r block 1040x online Type of entertainment if not otherwise apparent. H&r block 1040x online (Also see Business Purpose. H&r block 1040x online ) Purpose: Business purpose for the expense or the business benefit gained or expected to be gained. H&r block 1040x online  For entertainment, the nature of the business discussion or activity. H&r block 1040x online If the entertainment was directly before or after a business discussion: the date, place, nature, and duration of the business discussion, and the identities of the persons who took part in both the business discussion and the entertainment activity. H&r block 1040x online    Relationship: Occupations or other information (such as names, titles, or other designations) about the recipients that shows their business relationship to you. H&r block 1040x online  For entertainment, you must also prove that you or your employee was present if the entertainment was a business meal. H&r block 1040x online Gifts Cost of the gift. H&r block 1040x online Date of the gift. H&r block 1040x online Description of the gift. H&r block 1040x online   Transportation Cost of each separate expense. H&r block 1040x online For car expenses, the cost of the car and any improvements, the date you started using it for business, the mileage for each business use, and the total miles for the year. H&r block 1040x online Date of the expense. H&r block 1040x online For car expenses, the date of the use of the car. H&r block 1040x online Your business destination. H&r block 1040x online Purpose: Business purpose for the expense. H&r block 1040x online    Relationship: N/A Sampling. H&r block 1040x online   You can keep an adequate record for parts of a tax year and use that record to prove the amount of business or investment use for the entire year. H&r block 1040x online You must demonstrate by other evidence that the periods for which an adequate record is kept are representative of the use throughout the tax year. H&r block 1040x online Example. H&r block 1040x online You use your car to visit the offices of clients, meet with suppliers and other subcontractors, and pick up and deliver items to clients. H&r block 1040x online There is no other business use of the car, but you and your family use the car for personal purposes. H&r block 1040x online You keep adequate records during the first week of each month that show that 75% of the use of the car is for business. H&r block 1040x online Invoices and bills show that your business use continues at the same rate during the later weeks of each month. H&r block 1040x online Your weekly records are representative of the use of the car each month and are sufficient evidence to support the percentage of business use for the year. H&r block 1040x online Exceptional circumstances. H&r block 1040x online   You can satisfy the substantiation requirements with other evidence if, because of the nature of the situation in which an expense is made, you cannot get a receipt. H&r block 1040x online This applies if all the following are true. H&r block 1040x online You were unable to obtain evidence for an element of the expense or use that completely satisfies the requirements explained earlier under What Are Adequate Records . H&r block 1040x online You are unable to obtain evidence for an element that completely satisfies the two rules listed earlier under What If I Have Incomplete Records . H&r block 1040x online You have presented other evidence for the element that is the best proof possible under the circumstances. H&r block 1040x online Destroyed records. H&r block 1040x online   If you cannot produce a receipt because of reasons beyond your control, you can prove a deduction by reconstructing your records or expenses. H&r block 1040x online Reasons beyond your control include fire, flood, and other casualties. H&r block 1040x online    Table 5-2. H&r block 1040x online Daily Business Mileage and Expense Log Name:       Odometer Readings Expenses Date Destination  (City, Town, or Area) Business Purpose Start Stop Miles  this trip Type  (Gas, oil, tolls, etc. H&r block 1040x online ) Amount                                                                                                                   Weekly  Total             Total Year-to-Date             Separating and Combining Expenses This section explains when expenses must be kept separate and when expenses can be combined. H&r block 1040x online Separating expenses. H&r block 1040x online   Each separate payment is generally considered a separate expense. H&r block 1040x online For example, if you entertain a customer or client at dinner and then go to the theater, the dinner expense and the cost of the theater tickets are two separate expenses. H&r block 1040x online You must record them separately in your records. H&r block 1040x online Season or series tickets. H&r block 1040x online   If you buy season or series tickets for business use, you must treat each ticket in the series as a separate item. H&r block 1040x online To determine the cost of individual tickets, divide the total cost (but not more than face value) by the number of games or performances in the series. H&r block 1040x online You must keep records to show whether you use each ticket as a gift or entertainment. H&r block 1040x online Also, you must be able to prove the cost of nonluxury box seat tickets if you rent a skybox or other private luxury box for more than one event. H&r block 1040x online See Entertainment tickets in chapter 2. H&r block 1040x online Combining items. H&r block 1040x online   You can make one daily entry in your record for reasonable categories of expenses. H&r block 1040x online Examples are taxi fares, telephone calls, or other incidental travel costs. H&r block 1040x online Meals should be in a separate category. H&r block 1040x online You can include tips for meal-related services with the costs of the meals. H&r block 1040x online   Expenses of a similar nature occurring during the course of a single event are considered a single expense. H&r block 1040x online For example, if during entertainment at a cocktail lounge, you pay separately for each serving of refreshments, the total expense for the refreshments is treated as a single expense. H&r block 1040x online Car expenses. H&r block 1040x online   You can account for several uses of your car that can be considered part of a single use, such as a round trip or uninterrupted business use, with a single record. H&r block 1040x online Minimal personal use, such as a stop for lunch on the way between two business stops, is not an interruption of business use. H&r block 1040x online Example. H&r block 1040x online You make deliveries at several different locations on a route that begins and ends at your employer's business premises and that includes a stop at the business premises between two deliveries. H&r block 1040x online You can account for these using a single record of miles driven. H&r block 1040x online Gift expenses. H&r block 1040x online   You do not always have to record the name of each recipient of a gift. H&r block 1040x online A general listing will be enough if it is evident that you are not trying to avoid the $25 annual limit on the amount you can deduct for gifts to any one person. H&r block 1040x online For example, if you buy a large number of tickets to local high school basketball games and give one or two tickets to each of many customers, it is usually enough to record a general description of the recipients. H&r block 1040x online Allocating total cost. H&r block 1040x online   If you can prove the total cost of travel or entertainment but you cannot prove how much it cost for each person who participated in the event, you may have to allocate the total cost among you and your guests on a pro rata basis. H&r block 1040x online To do so, you must establish the number of persons who participated in the event. H&r block 1040x online   An allocation would be needed, for example, if you did not have a business relationship with all of your guests. H&r block 1040x online See Allocating between business and nonbusiness in chapter 2. H&r block 1040x online If your return is examined. H&r block 1040x online    If your return is examined, you may have to provide additional information to the IRS. H&r block 1040x online This information could be needed to clarify or to establish the accuracy or reliability of information contained in your records, statements, testimony, or documentary evidence before a deduction is allowed.

H&r block 1040x online Generally, this means you must keep records that support your deduction (or an item of income) for 3 years from the date you file the income tax return on which the deduction is claimed. H&r block 1040x online A return filed early is considered filed on the due date. H&r block 1040x online For a more complete explanation of how long to keep records, see Publication 583, Starting a Business and Keeping Records. H&r block 1040x online You must keep records of the business use of your car for each year of the recovery period. H&r block 1040x online See More-than-50%-use test in chapter 4 under Depreciation Deduction. H&r block 1040x online Reimbursed for expenses. H&r block 1040x online   Employees who give their records and documentation to their employers and are reimbursed for their expenses generally do not have to keep copies of this information. H&r block 1040x online However, you may have to prove your expenses if any of the following conditions apply. H&r block 1040x online You claim deductions for expenses that are more than reimbursements. H&r block 1040x online Your expenses are reimbursed under a nonaccountable plan. H&r block 1040x online Your employer does not use adequate accounting procedures to verify expense accounts. H&r block 1040x online You are related to your employer as defined under Per Diem and Car Allowances , in chapter 6. H&r block 1040x online Reimbursements , adequate accounting , and nonaccountable plans are discussed in chapter 6.
