Business meals can be purchased while in travel status on the travel card. The traveler must document the business purpose and who attended on the expense report. The employee's portion of the business meal will be considered part of that day's meal total. Business meals purchased in Texas are tax-exempt, even while in travel status. Meals purchased just for the employee while in travel status are not considered tax exempt.
All business meals require an itemized receipt showing what was purchased, regardless of the amount.
