If you are an employee who receives a W-2 your employee business expenses are not deductible on a federal tax return due to the tax code changes in effect for tax years 2018 thru 2025.

if you get a w-2 these are employee business expenses that are no longer deductible

However, you can list your miscellaneous itemized deduction in Turbotax because some states still allow the deduction, depending on your other tax situations.

 

However (again), in order to deduct an expense as work-related when the expense is partly work-related and partly personal, you must allocate the work-related part to the business and you must have some reasonable written or computer record that supports your allocation.  What percentage of your home internet would you allocate to your job, and how would you prove it if audited?
