Does the nondeductible portion of meals expenses result in a permanent or temporary tax difference?

Expenses for meals will be deductible up to 50% (may vary based on current tax legislation) of the expense for calculating taxable income but will be entirely recognized (100%) as an expense when calculating net income for financial reporting purposes. Therefore, this will always result in a permanent difference unless the tax law changes.
