Reimbursed work expenses

Will we still be able to deduct non-reimbursed work related expenses?

No, under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) that Congress signed into law on December 22, 2017, the unreimbursed employee expenses deduction has been suspended in tax years 2018 through 2025.

Does this mean we can't write off, rental fees or mileage for rideshare?

Hi Holly,

Does this mean that we do not get to deduct for gas, mileage, or rental fees for driving rideshare?

I ask because the terminology says unreimbursed employee expenses and with Rideshare you are self-employed.

Don't worry, @Cturne10 , this tax reform does not affect most rideshare drivers, because you are considered an independent contractor instead of an employee. Check out our article, Tax Tips for Uber, Lyft, Sidecar and other Car Sharing Drivers. Also, I recommend using TurboTax Self-Employed, which maximizes unique deductions for rideshare drivers.  You can learn more by watching the short video below.
