For some reason my wife's w -2 job related expenses are not being deducted. Why?

I put in my wife's milage for her vehicle that she uses for work only and some equipment she uses for her job only, but it is not reducing my fed taxes

For some reason my wife's w -2 job related expenses are not being deducted. Why?

Job-related expenses are subject to the 2% rule, meaning that the total amount of your  expenses must be greater than 2% of your AGI (adjusted gross income) before you would receive a tax benefit from them. 

Enter other miscellaneous expenses and see if you can get past the threshold.
