George must make an adequate accounting to his employer and return any excess reimbursement. Additionally, Toyboat provides George with medical insurance worth $7,200 per year. George drove his car 24,000 miles during the year. Hi log indicates that 18,000 miles were for sales calls to customers at the customers' offices and the remainder was personal mileage. George uses the standard mileage rate method. Assume his business miles were driven equally during the year. George is a professional basketball fan. He purchased two season tickets for a total of $4,000. He takes a customer to every game, and they discuss a little business at the games. George also takes clients to business lunches. His log indicates that he spent $1,500 on these business meals. George also took a five-day trip to the Toyboat headquarters in Musty, Ohio. He was so well-prepared that he finished his business in three days, so he spent the other two days sightseeing. He had the following expenses during each of the five days of his trip:


Airfare $200 Lodgoing $85/day Meals $50/day Taxicabs $20/day
