Hello and thank you for using Just Answer.

Robin D :

You are traveling away from home if your duties require you to be away from the general area of your tax home for a period substantially longer than an ordinary day's work, and you need to get sleep or rest to meet the demands of your work while away.


Generally, your tax home is the entire city or general area where your main place of business or work is located, regardless of where you maintain your family home.

Robin D :

If your main place of business is Atlanta then none of the expenses are deductible.

I wish I could advise you differently,
