Can the cost of medical scrubs be deducted for a nurse.

Yes, you may be able to deduct the cost of uniforms that are necessary for you to perform your job.

For a list of employee expenses you can include, see: Employee Business Expenses

Employee business deductions are reported on Schedule A (Itemized Deductions) as Miscellaneous Expenses. Your total Miscellaneous Expenses must exceed 2 percent of your Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) in order to be included on your Schedule A.

 To find this section in TurboTax, open your return, then go to My Account >> Tools >> Topic Search. Type in "job expenses, employee", then click the topic in the list and GO to go directly to the start of this section.

Follow the prompts to enter your job-related expenses.

TurboTax will help you determine if your expenses can be reported and if your total Miscellaneous Expenses meet the threshold to be deductible.
