Can I claim my meals and entertainment as a truck driver on federal and state

Yes, if you can itemize deductions on the federal return and you travel away from home for a period that requires sleep before you come back.

There are special rules for Department of Transportation (DOT) workers. TurboTax has a great FAQ that explains the rules and how to enter your deduction.

Check your state laws to determine if you would enter this separately on the state return (one example is PA).
