Conus Experts


Jun 24, 2005
I have decided I would like to try to track my expenses vs Conus rates this year. Just curious as to what the best method is for doing this. Do I put in the actual expenses and then the system calculates the difference? I guess what I am looking for is what others are doing strategy wise. I downloaded the current rates and will slowly be importing them into APDL. I love the program but wish it had a desktop version to make all of this editing a lot easier.

The software is setup to track Actual, CONUS, and the IRS standard ME&I rate. At the end of the year user the method that gives you the highest amount. Have your CPA/Tax Preparer adjust it for what the company has paid you in perdiem to determine the actual deduction.
