Who qualifies for a subsistence allowance?

Police and all commissioned law enforcement officers, including full-time firefighters or full-time emergency medical service personnel, paid by South Carolina municipal, county, or state governments, or the federal government are entitled to subsistence allowances of $8 per regular workday. Your employer should provide you with the number of work days you are allowed to claim.

If you are married filing jointly and both you and your spouse qualify for this allowance, add the number of work days for each and enter the total.
