I just wanted to know if I can claim the per diem difference from the rate my employer uses to the rate GSA has listed on my taxes?

Thank you for using justanswer. As an employee you may file 2007 Form2106 Employee Business Expenses to claim the difference between what you were actually reimbursed and what is allowed by the government. In order for you to get a benefit from this form, you must be able to itemize deductions on your Federal 1040 Schedule A, and your unreimbursed portion of your business expenses must exceed 2% of your Adjusted Gross Income.
Please see the following for more indepth information
I hope this helps
