administrative assistant for school district qualifies for fee-basis state or local government official to include expenses in tax return?

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.  There are some exceptions where you can still use Form 2106 through tax year 2025, including if you were an Armed Forces reservist, qualified performing artist, fee-basis state or local government official, or an employee with impairment-related work expenses.

 

Here's how to enter your job-related expenses in TurboTax (if you meet the requirements mentioned above):

 

  1. Open (continue) your return in TurboTax if it's not already open.
  2. In TurboTax, search for 2106 and then select the Jump to 2106 link in the search results.
  3. Answer Yes on the Do you have any expenses from one of these professions or situations? screen.
  4. Enter your occupation on the next screen, then select Continue.
    • If you land on the Job-Related Expenses Summary screen, you can select Add Another Occupation (to add another 2106), Edit (for an existing 2106), or Delete.
  5. Answer the questions about your occupation and follow the onscreen instructions to enter your employee expenses.

You are a qualifying fee-basis official if you are employed by a state or political subdivision of a state and are compensated, in whole or in part, on a fee basis.
