Per Diem Plus™ Releases the First Automated Per Diem and Expense Tracking App for Truck Drivers
ST. LOUIS, MO (11/23/15) — Per Diem Plus, LLC has announced the launch of a mobile application specifically designed for US-based over-the-road truck drivers to streamline and eliminate the guesswork of tax-related recordkeeping.
“Our Android-based app creates a paperless, IRS-compliant record of per diem, travel-related and business expenses for drivers operating in the contiguous U.S., Alaska and Canada,” according to John Stefek, Director of Client Experience at Per Diem Plus. Per Diem Plus will save time and money for drivers who deduct these expenses on their own tax returns.
After the truck driver sets up their profile, Per Diem Plus uses GPS-data to automatically track each qualifying full or partial day of travel away from home. The application incorporates scanning technology to allow drivers to eliminate receipts along with keeping track of their lodging, travel-related and business expenses.
This information, accessible on their phone, can then be used by the driver or their tax preparer to accurately claim and validate per diem and expenses on their tax return. The Per Diem Plus application is available in the Google Play store for $9.99/month or $7.99/month for members of the Owner Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA). An iOS-based version for iPhones and iPads is expected to launch Q2 2016.
Per Diem Plus was developed and is managed in the USA by tax professionals with transportation industry experience.
