Per Diem Request

Per diems are tracked under the expense category “7600 Program Travel and Lodging.” View and download the Chart of Accounts (updated Jan 2023).

Checks are issued after verifying the correct per diem has been calculated (USA RatesForeign Rates), based on the timeframe and location.

Please allow two weeks for Dancers’ Group to process the request — it takes an additional 4-6 business days for the business to receive payment.

Per Diem is taxable income: Dancers’ Group must report all income paid, including per diems. These funds, and any other income paid out will be reported on a 1099 for the individual paid (and you, the artist, in filing your Schedule C tax form would deduct the travel, hotel, and food costs paid with the per diem as an expense, so you’d only be taxed on any invoiced income).

Submit a W-9 (Note: This links to a fillable W-9 on pdfFiller, an online platform that supports e-signatures. Dancers’ Group is automatically notified when a W-9 is submitted through this link – the W-9 will be added to the per diem request from the individual/business.)

A W-9 is required from any individual or business that Dancers’ Group has not previously paid. Dancers’ Group may need to request a new W-9 from any individual or business even if they have been paid previously. If you’re unsure, contact us to determine if a W-9 is needed.
