2022 meals and entertainment deduction

As part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act signed into law on December 27, 2020, the deductibility of meals changed. Food and beverages will be 100% deductible if purchased from a restaurant in 2021 and 2022.

Here are some examples:

Type of Expense Deduction
Entertaining clients (sport events, club membership, golf games, etc.) 0% deductible
Ministry meals with member to conduct ministry or church business 50% deductible (100% if purchased from a restaurant)
Office snacks and meals to conduct ministry or church business 50% deductible (100% if purchased from a restaurant)
Professional & Meals allowance  (included in taxable compensation) 0% deductible
Entertainment allowance  (included in taxable compensation) 0% deductible

In summary, if you’re dining out with a member at a restaurant, you can consider that meal 100% tax-deductible. However, if you’re entertaining that same member in-office with snacks purchased at a grocery store, the meal is 50% deductible.
