How do I deduct unreimbursed business expenses?

Job-related expenses are reported on Form 2106 (Employee Business Expenses).

  1. Open (continue) your return in TurboTax.
  2. In the find/search box, search for 2106 and then click the "Jump to" link in the search results.
  3. At the Tell us about the occupation you have expenses for screen, enter your occupation.
  4. Click Continue and follow the onscreen instructions.

If you land on the Job-Related Expenses Summary screen instead, you can either Edit expenses for an existing job or clickAdd Another Occupation to enter expenses for a new one.

Tip: If the only work-related use of your car is commuting back and forth between your home and main workplace, do not enter any vehicle mileage or expenses. The IRS doesn't let employees deduct commuting costs.
