If you are an employee you should enter your business travel expenses as job-related expenses. You'll need to itemize deductions to claim these expenses, and they won't be fully deductible as they are subject to the 2% rule.
To enter your job-related travel expenses:
- Continue working on your return in TurboTax Online. (If your return isn't open, you'll need to sign in and click Take me to my return.)
- Click My Account (top right of your screen).
- Select Tools.
- In the pop-up window, select Topic Search.
- In the search bar, type 2106.
- In the results box, highlight 2106, then click GO.
- You'll land on the page that says Tell us about the occupation you have expenses for. Enter your occupation and click Continue.
- Continue to answer the questions in this section. If you used your own vehicle for travel, answer Yes when asked Any Vehicle Expenses or Sales? and continue to answer the questions about your vehicle. If you didn't use your own vehicle, answer No and click Continue.
- Continue through the interview. When you get to the Any Other Expenses? screen, you'll be able to enter travel expenses, such as airfare and lodging. Note that there are separate fields for entering parking and local transportation and meals. (Click the screenshot below for reference.)
- After you enter your travel expenses, click Continue and follow the onscreen instructions to the conclusion of this section. When you're finished, TurboTax will display the Job-Related Expenses Summary.
