I am teleworking because of COVID , I had to buy a stand up desk , have increased speed for work and dedicate a room in house . Can I claim these expenses
Most likely you cannot, but we will take a look at them and see if they are deductible.
Job-related expenses for employees are no longer deductible on most people’s federal return in tax years 2018 through 2025 due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) that Congress passed and the President signed into law on December 22, 2017.
However, the job-related expenses deduction is still available to people who work in one of these specific professions or situations:
- Armed Forces reservist
- Qualified performing artist
- Fee-basis state or local government official
- You're disabled and have impairment-related expenses
Additionally, job-related expenses may be deductible in your state. Enter your expenses and we’ll figure out if you can deduct them.
