100% Food and Beverage Expense Deduction for 2021 and 2022

The IRS has issued Notice 2021-25 that temporarily increases for 2021 and 2022 the Business Deduction for Business Meal Expenses to 100% from 50%. This applies to food or beverages provided by a restaurant. The term “restaurant” means a business that prepares and sells food or beverages to retail customers for immediate consumption, regardless of whether the food or beverages are consumed on the business’s premises. However, a restaurant does not include a business that primarily sells pre-packaged food or beverages not for immediate consumption, such as a grocery store; specialty food store; beer, wine, or liquor store; drug store; convenience store; newsstand; or a vending machine or kiosk. All other previous limitations and restrictions on the deductibility of Business Meal Expenses still apply. For further guidance or to review Notice 2021-25, please click this link.
