REPORTING EXPENSES UNDER A NONACCOUNTABLE PLAN

Your employer will combine the amount of any reimbursement or other expense allowance paid to you under a nonaccountable plan with your wages, salary, or other pay. Your employer will report the total in box 1 of your Form W-2. You must complete Form 2106 or 2106-EZ and itemize your deductions to deduct your expenses for travel, transportation, meals, or entertainment. Your meal and entertainment expenses will be subject to the 50% limit discussed earlier under Entertainment Expenses. Also, your total expenses will be subject to the 2%-of-adjusted-gross-income limit that applies to most miscellaneous itemized deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040).

CAPITAL GAINS AND DIVIDENDS

Qualified dividends and long-term capital gains may escape tax entirely under the 0% rate, or be subject to capital gain rates of 15% or 20% depending on filing status, taxable income, and how much of the taxable income consists of qualified dividends and eligible long-term gains. The 20% capital gain rate has the same taxable income thresholds as the 39.6% ordinary income rates, either $466,950, $441,000, $415,050, or $233,475, depending on the filing status. The 0%, 15%, and 20% rates do not apply to long-term gains from collectibles, which are subject to a 28% rate, or the 25% rate for unrecaptured real estate depreciation.
