Consider creating an accountable plan:

Now that itemized deductions have been suspended through 2025, employees can no longer deduct unreimbursed business expenses. Fortunately, you can help your employees out with a tax benefit that is also deductible by creating an accountable plan.

Call us if you have questions about setting up an accountable plan for your business.
