Where do I deduct the non reimbursed business expense of computer software and cost of internet access?

To enter your Unreimbursed Job-related expenses like mileage, cell phone, internet, in home office expenses, meals, etc.:

1.    Open (continue) your return in TurboTax.
(To do this, sign in to TurboTax and click the orange Take me to my return button.)

2.    In the search box, search for 2106 and then click the "Jump to" link in the search results.

3.    At the Tell us about the occupation you have expenses for screen, enter your occupation.

4.    Click Continue and follow the onscreen instructions.  

If you land on the Job-Related Expenses Summary screen instead, you can either Edit expenses for an existing job or click Add Another Occupation to enter expenses for a new one.


Note: Unreimbursed job-related expenses (Form 2106), tax preparation fees, investment or advisory fees, and safe deposit box rentals, are subject to the 2% rule. See What is the 2% rule?

Under the 2% rule, you're only allowed to deduct the portion of miscellaneous expenses that exceeds 2% of your adjusted gross income (AGI). You must also itemize to get this deduction.

Tip: If the only work-related use of your car is commuting back and forth between your home and main workplace, do not enter any vehicle mileage or expenses. The IRS doesn't let employees deduct commuting costs.
