The summer vacation season traditionally begins today with the arrival of the three-day Memorial Day holiday.
One unexpected place to look for vacation help is the IRS. Tax laws can help you combine business and pleasure travel.
Using Uncle Sam as a quasi travel agent isn't always the easiest way to plan for a quick vacation. You do, after all, have to follow the tax rules.
But when a few days off can be paired with legitimate work-related travel, you can take a bit of a break and save a few dollars by claiming all the allowable tax deductions for the business part of your trip.
Details are in my Bankrate story Tax help for business, pleasure trips. I hope it helps you work in a much needed, and less costly, break from the grind.
