On Turbo Tax Deluxe I can't find where to deduct my unreimburse car mileage.

You can enter the unreimbursed mileage here:

Go to Federal Taxes,

·         Click Deductions and Credits, 

·         Select I'll choose what I work on 

·         Select Job-Related Expenses under Employment Expenses.

·         Select Yes to the Did you have any of these expenses in 2016 for your W-2 income?

·         Follow along the interview.

OR

 

In the same section, you can claim the Actual Expenses method of deducting your car for work. It is based on the expenses you actually incur in the operation of your vehicle. It includes things like:

·         gas purchases

·         repairs

·         oil changes

·         tire purchases

·         car washes

·         insurance

·         and even vehicle depreciation

However, you can only claim the percentage of expenses that apply to the business use of your vehicle. To compute this, you must know how many miles you drove for business purposes and how much you drove for personal reasons.

TurboTax will walk your through each method and choose which is best for your situation.
