Important! This page contains critical information about substantiating expenses to avoid taxation. Please read it in its entirety. Expenses not substantiated within the timeframes outlined below will result in taxes on those expenses being deducted from your Cornell paycheck.
While Cornell may pay for or reimburse an employee’s expenses incurred to travel to campus from a remote work location, the costs paid for or reimbursed may be taxable to the employee in certain instances.
The taxability of these expenses is not explicitly determined by an employee’s classification as a staff or faculty member, fully remote, hybrid, or on-campus. However, travel to campus for employees who are not fully remote (e.g., hybrid/on-site employees) is considered commuting and is not reimbursable. If paid, these amounts are taxable.
