I get a uniform allowance from my employer to buy uniforms and maintain them. Can I deduct the amount I paid to purchase and maintain them?

If your employer included the uniform allowance in box 1 of your Form W-2, you can deduct it as a job-related expense subject to 2% of your Adjusted Gross Income AGI. 

If your employer did not include the amount as your taxable wages, you cannot deduct it.
