Yes, the following job search expenses must be directly and exclusively related to your job search, and could include things like:

  • Preparing your résumé.

  • Printing and mailing costs.

  • Posting your résumé and placing ads.

  • Phone and computer expenses.

  • Food and lodging for out-of-town job-hunting trips.

  • Mileage.

  • Employment and outplacement agency fees.

  • Registration fees for conventions and other networking opportunities specific to your line of work.

@lisaxkrone You just posted a very old thread.  The information here is out of date.   Job-search expenses are no longer deductible on a federal return.   That was eliminated when the tax laws changed for 2018 and beyond.
