Where can i put in my car repair expenses for my delivery job?

Vehicle expenses can be entered in two different places - under your personal return on Form 2106, and on your business return on Schedule C. Depending on if you were paid on a W-2(Form 2106) or 1099-MISC(Schedule C), you will enter them in one of those two places.

To enter vehicle expenses on Form 2106:

1. Select "Federal Taxes" at the top of the page

2. Select the "Deductions & Credits" sub-tab

3. Scroll down to "Employment Expenses" and select "Show More"

4. Select "Start" next to "Job Expenses for W-2 Income"

5. Select "Edit" next to your occupation(Or enter it when asked)

6. Select “Edit” next to your vehicle and continue to edit your mileage

7. After entering your mileage you should arrive to a screen asking "Do You Want to Enter Your Actual Expenses?", answer "Yes". Here you can enter your gas expenses, repair/maintenance expenses, etc.

8. Continue entering your information until finished
