With employee business expenses no longer deductible for employees, reimbursing employees is the only game left in town. Tens of thousands of dollars, if not more, are at risk annually, all at the throws of whether an accountable expense reimbursement plan is properly structured and operated.  To be on the right side of this one, nothing at all can be taken for granted.  All must be done impeccably else the employment and income tax consequences can be fierce.
