I recently returned to the U.S. All my income for this year was made in Japan. I have one complicated issue: my company gave me money for a plane ticket home. I did not have to account for it, I bought my ticket myself and was allowed to swallow the extra. This apparently makes it income I am required to report, but it doesn't appear on my Ής₯ϋ\.
However, poking around it I can't figure out how I would report it. It seems that any U.S. company who had given me a chunk of extra taxable income in this way would have given me a form to report it with. Having no such form I don't know what to do.
I saw people say in other threads that the IRS doesn't care what the numbers are as long as you're below the foreign income exemption amount. I'm well below it whether I report the plane ticket money or not. Does that mean it's not a big deal and I can just report what's on my Ής₯ϋ\? Just ignoring the plane ticket money would be the easiest thing for sure. If I report it, how do I report it?
