H&r block free online 5. H&r block free 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 free online This chapter discusses the records you need to keep to prove these expenses. H&r block free 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 free online You will also have proof of expenses that your employer may require if you are reimbursed under an accountable plan. H&r block free online These plans are discussed in chapter 6 under Reimbursements . H&r block free 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 free online You must be able to prove the elements listed across the top portion of the chart. H&r block free online You prove them by having the information and receipts (where needed) for the expenses listed in the first column. H&r block free online You cannot deduct amounts that you approximate or estimate. H&r block free online You should keep adequate records to prove your expenses or have sufficient evidence that will support your own statement. H&r block free online You must generally prepare a written record for it to be considered adequate. H&r block free online This is because written evidence is more reliable than oral evidence alone. H&r block free online However, if you prepare a record on a computer, it is considered an adequate record. H&r block free 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 free online You should also keep documentary evidence that, together with your record, will support each element of an expense. H&r block free online Documentary evidence. H&r block free online   You generally must have documentary evidence, such as receipts, canceled checks, or bills, to support your expenses. H&r block free online Exception. H&r block free online   Documentary evidence is not needed if any of the following conditions apply. H&r block free 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 free online ( Accountable plans and per diem allowances are discussed in chapter 6. H&r block free online ) Your expense, other than lodging, is less than $75. H&r block free online You have a transportation expense for which a receipt is not readily available. H&r block free online Adequate evidence. H&r block free online   Documentary evidence ordinarily will be considered adequate if it shows the amount, date, place, and essential character of the expense. H&r block free 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 free online The name and location of the hotel. H&r block free online The dates you stayed there. H&r block free online Separate amounts for charges such as lodging, meals, and telephone calls. H&r block free 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 free online The name and location of the restaurant. H&r block free online The number of people served. H&r block free online The date and amount of the expense. H&r block free 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 free online Canceled check. H&r block free online   A canceled check, together with a bill from the payee, ordinarily establishes the cost. H&r block free 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 free online Duplicate information. H&r block free 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 free online   You do not have to record amounts your employer pays directly for any ticket or other travel item. H&r block free 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 free online Timely-kept records. H&r block free 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 free 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 free online   You do not need to write down the elements of every expense on the day of the expense. H&r block free 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 free 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 free 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 free online Proving business purpose. H&r block free online   You must generally provide a written statement of the business purpose of an expense. H&r block free online However, the degree of proof varies according to the circumstances in each case. H&r block free 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 free online Example. H&r block free 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 free 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 free online You could also establish the date of each trip with a receipt, record of delivery, or other documentary evidence. H&r block free online Confidential information. H&r block free 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 free 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 free 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 free 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 free 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 free online Documentary evidence can be receipts, paid bills, or similar evidence. H&r block free 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 free 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 free online Invoices of deliveries establish when you used the car for business. H&r block free online Table 5-1. H&r block free online How To Prove Certain Business Expenses IF you have expenses for . H&r block free online . H&r block free online THEN you must keep records that show details of the following elements . H&r block free online . H&r block free online . H&r block free online   Amount Time Place or  Description Business Purpose Business Relationship Travel Cost of each separate expense for travel, lodging, and meals. H&r block free online Incidental expenses may be totaled in reasonable categories such as taxis, fees and tips, etc. H&r block free online Dates you left and returned for each trip and number of days spent on business. H&r block free online Destination or area of your travel (name of city, town, or other designation). H&r block free online Purpose: Business purpose for the expense or the business benefit gained or expected to be gained. H&r block free online    Relationship: N/A Entertainment Cost of each separate expense. H&r block free online Incidental expenses such as taxis, telephones, etc. H&r block free online , may be totaled on a daily basis. H&r block free online Date of entertainment. H&r block free online (Also see Business Purpose. H&r block free online ) Name and address or location of place of entertainment. H&r block free online Type of entertainment if not otherwise apparent. H&r block free online (Also see Business Purpose. H&r block free online ) Purpose: Business purpose for the expense or the business benefit gained or expected to be gained. H&r block free online  For entertainment, the nature of the business discussion or activity. H&r block free 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 free 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 free online  For entertainment, you must also prove that you or your employee was present if the entertainment was a business meal. H&r block free online Gifts Cost of the gift. H&r block free online Date of the gift. H&r block free online Description of the gift. H&r block free online   Transportation Cost of each separate expense. H&r block free 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 free online Date of the expense. H&r block free online For car expenses, the date of the use of the car. H&r block free online Your business destination. H&r block free online Purpose: Business purpose for the expense. H&r block free online    Relationship: N/A Sampling. H&r block free 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 free 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 free online Example. H&r block free 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 free online There is no other business use of the car, but you and your family use the car for personal purposes. H&r block free 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 free online Invoices and bills show that your business use continues at the same rate during the later weeks of each month. H&r block free 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 free online Exceptional circumstances. H&r block free 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 free online This applies if all the following are true. H&r block free 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 free 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 free online You have presented other evidence for the element that is the best proof possible under the circumstances. H&r block free online Destroyed records. H&r block free 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 free online Reasons beyond your control include fire, flood, and other casualties. H&r block free online    Table 5-2. H&r block free 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 free 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 free online Separating expenses. H&r block free online   Each separate payment is generally considered a separate expense. H&r block free 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 free online You must record them separately in your records. H&r block free online Season or series tickets. H&r block free 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 free 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 free online You must keep records to show whether you use each ticket as a gift or entertainment. H&r block free 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 free online See Entertainment tickets in chapter 2. H&r block free online Combining items. H&r block free online   You can make one daily entry in your record for reasonable categories of expenses. H&r block free online Examples are taxi fares, telephone calls, or other incidental travel costs. H&r block free online Meals should be in a separate category. H&r block free online You can include tips for meal-related services with the costs of the meals. H&r block free online   Expenses of a similar nature occurring during the course of a single event are considered a single expense. H&r block free 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 free online Car expenses. H&r block free 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 free 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 free online Example. H&r block free 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 free online You can account for these using a single record of miles driven. H&r block free online Gift expenses. H&r block free online   You do not always have to record the name of each recipient of a gift. H&r block free 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 free 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 free online Allocating total cost. H&r block free 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 free online To do so, you must establish the number of persons who participated in the event. H&r block free online   An allocation would be needed, for example, if you did not have a business relationship with all of your guests. H&r block free online See Allocating between business and nonbusiness in chapter 2. H&r block free online If your return is examined. H&r block free online    If your return is examined, you may have to provide additional information to the IRS. H&r block free 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 free 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 free online A return filed early is considered filed on the due date. H&r block free online For a more complete explanation of how long to keep records, see Publication 583, Starting a Business and Keeping Records. H&r block free online You must keep records of the business use of your car for each year of the recovery period. H&r block free online See More-than-50%-use test in chapter 4 under Depreciation Deduction. H&r block free online Reimbursed for expenses. H&r block free 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 free online However, you may have to prove your expenses if any of the following conditions apply. H&r block free online You claim deductions for expenses that are more than reimbursements. H&r block free online Your expenses are reimbursed under a nonaccountable plan. H&r block free online Your employer does not use adequate accounting procedures to verify expense accounts. H&r block free online You are related to your employer as defined under Per Diem and Car Allowances , in chapter 6. H&r block free online Reimbursements , adequate accounting , and nonaccountable plans are discussed in chapter 6.

To connect your computer to the Internet, you'll need an Internet Service Provider (ISP). Some ISPs are large and well known, while others are literally one-person operations. Some companies limit their service to providing Internet access only. Others, such as a telephone or cable company, may offer Internet access as part of a larger package of services. You may also have access to fiber-optic service in your community. It is important to compare service providers and options to make sure you are getting what you want and the best deal possible to meet your needs.

If you have limited Internet expertise, you may want to start with one of the well-known ISPs. They usually offer user-friendly startup software. This software often includes features such as a browser, instant messaging, parental controls, and pop-up blockers. Many also offer 24-hour technical support. Of course, all of this convenience results in higher monthly user fees. Once you are comfortable with how the Internet works, you may discover you don't need all the "extras" and can switch to a lower-cost ISP.

Consider these factors when selecting a provider:

  • Speed. If all you want to do is check e-mail and read web pages, a dial-up connection may be enough. But if you want to download music or television shows or watch videos, you will need a faster connection with broadband access, such as a digital subscriber line (DSL), a cable modem, or satellite
  • Availability.. Which companies offer service in your area?
  • Wireless access. Can you get a wireless connection for other computers in your home?
  • E-mail. Do e-mail accounts come with the service? What will be the storage limit on your mailbox?
  • Software. Is any software required to activate the service?
  • Support. What kinds of support are available: phone, e-mail, chat, etc.? Is the support free?
  • Special Features. What services are provided for spam blocking, virus protection, instant messaging and chat rooms?
  • Terms of Service. Is there a limit to the amount of data you can use per month?
  • Cost. What is the monthly fee for the service? Are there fees for renting a modem or set up?

Bundling and Other Promotions

Do you want to get Internet, telephone, and TV service from the same provider? Buying a bundle of services from one provider can be a good deal, but could make it more difficult to change providers for any one service if you're tied into a long-term contract.

Special promotions such as introductory pricing may be enticing, but read the fine print. The promotion price probably does not include taxes or the cost of extra equipment or fees. Get all promises in writing. Ask when the special promotions end and what the post-promotion cost will be. Also find out whether you have to install any special equipment and whether the provider will help troubleshoot on the phone if you have any problems.

Some deals are available only online or by phone. Even if you have to order online, call the provider first to ask questions. When you are online, review any frequently asked questions, minimum system requirements, and fine-print terms and conditions. Read the entire customer service agreement and print a copy for your records. For help deciding on the best values from telephone, TV, and Internet service providers; filing a complaint; or learning more about consumer protections, contact the Federal Communications Commission.
