Can you write off car rentals for transportation to work?

No, not if you are an employee (not self employed) and the rental is for commuting back and forth from home to work.

However, if you travel to and from a temporary work location (where your assignment is expected to last no more than 1 year) outside your metropolitan area, you can claim commuting expenses. You can also claim commuting expenses to and from a temporary work site, regardless of location, as long as your main workplace is elsewhere.
