Deductibility of lodging expenses. This notice announces that the Service and the Department of the Treasury intend to amend regulations section 1.262-1(b)(5) to provide that the costs of a taxpayer’s lodging not incurred while traveling away from home may qualify as deductible expenses under section 162 of the Code and thus would not be nondeductible personal expenses.
