Work-related Expenses
Posted on:Thursday, July 4, 2013

Have you spent money on items to do your job?  Some expenses may be deductible such as:

  • Mileage/Transportation

  • Business Travel Expenses

  • Meals

  • Education (Tuition and Books)

  • Trade Publications

  • Gloves, Steel Toe Boots and Coveralls

Incidental Expenses

Instead of keeping records of your actual incidental or miscelaneous expenses, you can use an optional method for deducting them only if you did not pay or incur meal expenses on a day you were traveling away from your tax home.  The amount of the deduction is $5 a day.
