    Can I deduct paid parking or is that included in the M&IE per-diem along with hotels, laundry, meals, etc.?

    If you are a company driver then you can't deduct any employee non reimbursed business expenses. If an O/O or independent contractor then yes, you can deduct parking fees separately.And incidentally, hotels are not included either. You can deduct those separately too. From the IRS:

    The per diem rate for M&IE includes the following items: • All meals, • Room service, • Laundry, dry cleaning, and pressing of clothing, and • Fees and tips for persons who provide services, such as food servers and luggage handlers
