This expense type would be used when a meeting includes a meal where each participant pays for a portion of the meal expense or pays the entire cost of their own meal in one of the following scenarios:

EXAMPLE 1: An employee travels from Harrisburg to UP for a meeting. Meeting participants decide to work through lunch and have food delivered to them. The employee pays $6.00 toward lunch -- the $6.00 would be a Non-Taxable 1-Day Meal expense. EXAMPLE 2: An employee travels to UP for a meeting. After the meeting, traveler and another participant go to lunch to review the topics discussed at the meeting, each paying for their own meal.

When a Non-Taxable 1-Day Meal is claimed, the request must follow the same rules as a Group Meal (attendees required) expense.
