I have been reimbursed for mileage already I can't submit for it on tax return

I'm trying to deduct for my car lease payments, car insurance, etc bc my job requires a safe vehicle, we have to have car or we would not keep our job. My employer pays mileage in our paycheck. So I can't claim mileage on tax return.

If your employer includes your reimbursement as taxable income (ie. box #1, W-2), you can deduct your vehicle expenses in full.

Otherwise, you can only deduct unreimbursed vehicle expenses,.

To cliam vehicle expenses:

  • Type in 2106 in the search box, top right of your screen, then click the magnifying glass
  • Click the jump to 2106 link in the search results.
  • Follow the prompts and onscreen instructions
  • You will arrive at the Any Vehicle Expenses or Sales?

Follow the prompts and onscreen instructions

As you navigate thro ugh the Employee Business Expense Category you will arrive at the Reimbursement For Your Expenses page (towards the end). Enter your employer reimbursement in this area.
