Where do I deduct daily rate or rent and utilities for costs of a temporary assignment?

When you travel away from your tax home overnight on business, you can deduct the round-trip transportation cost (for example, car expenses or airfare and parking), plus 100 percent of lodging costs for business days, plus 50 percent of meal costs for business days, plus 100 percent of incidentals (such dry cleaning costs) for business days.
