How do I deduct reimbursed work expenses?

My wife did a lot of driving for work.  Her employer reimbursed her based on her mileage.  I believe her employer included these reimbursements in her taxable income on her W-2.  How do I deduct the reimbursed funds from her taxable income?

How do I deduct reimbursed work expenses?

You can deduct your wife's expenses if they were included in her W-2, gross wages.  Otherwise, you can only deduct your wife's unreimbursed costs:

Job-related expenses are located in:

  1. Federal Taxes
  2. Deductions & Credits (you may have to select See all tax breaks)
  3. Employment Expenses
  4. Job-Expenses for W-2 Income - continue through the interview, you'll be asked for the vehicle expenses, as well as other expenses that you wife paid for her job.
