Why did my itemized professional expenses not show up on my return?

Sorry, Deductions for job expenses have been suspended with the new tax act.  See Deductions that have been suspended for 2018-2025

TurboTax will ask if any of these apply when you fill out this section.   You are encouraged to enter your expenses no matter what your occupation as the expenses may be deductible on your state return despite not being deductible on your federal return.  

 

The FEDERAL job-related expenses deduction is only available to people who work in one of these specific professions or situations:

  • Armed Forces reservist
  • Qualified performing artist
  • Fee-basis state or local government official
  • You're disabled and have impairment-related expenses

not only has the deduction for W-2 job related expenses been eliminated but so to has the Schedule A deduction for legal fees, brokerage fees and other 2% itemized deductions.
