I did not have a travel allowance however we were reimbursed by our employer for travel (under 8000). My IRP5 states that I received R17909 for code 3703 (reimbursive travel allowance). This is a substantial figure & I am sure it also then includes funds that were paid to my company diner's card for airfare. Will I be taxed on this amount, or is it non-taxable income? As I was not receiving a travel allowance I did not keep a log book. Was I supposed to?

This is not taxable and should be the same as source code 3696 on the IRP5 which you will notice is a NON TAXABLE as well.
