  • Expense Reimbursement Time Limit? New Jersey

    I submitted two expense reports that were for expenses that occurred 6 and 8 months ago. I'm being told that the company policy is that reports need to be reported within one week of the or they will not be reimbursed. Is this allowed?

    Yes, it's allowed. (a) Your employer isn't required to reimburse you for business expenses at all, and (b) employers who do usually have a time limit within which expenses and supporting documentation must be provided to the company. If they're telling you that you're SOL because of the amount of time that has passed, then I'm afraid that's the way it is.

      Hmmm... That's what I thought. Figured I'd get another (hopefully different) point of view. Thanks!

        And even if they did reimburse you after you waited that long to submit your expense reports, the entire reimbursement would be taxable wages, subject to all payroll withholdings.
        I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
