There is no hard and fast rule.  I would say that 6 months is a lot safer than 2 months, but when you make the majority of your money in one location over a period of five, three, or  even two years the IRS will logically think this is your tax home.  Also, your per diem becomes taxable the moment that you know the job will last longer than one year (tough to prove I know).  It is a good idea to get the one year duration in the offer letter.

Let's not even get into the discussion of whether someone is eligible for taxable per diem.
