Form 2106- Employee Out of Town Travel Expenses(construction workers)on temporary jobs, less than 1 year in duration.Can he use depreciation on the Travel Trailer,purchased for this purpose & expenses related thereto in lieu of hotel/motel expenses because it is less expensive.
(Note*Most of his fellow union construction workers elect to do this when they are working out of town as does most other construction workers around the US for over 40 years that I know of,many of which have been audited and allowed this deduction..)
His IRS auditor has disallowed it because she said (it is a personal asset) although she allowed the Lot Rent the Travel Trailer sat on? I was under the impression that it is allowed as long as it is less than motel/hotel expenses and used in lieu of.
