Will we still be able to claim business expenses in 2018 after tax reform, ie sales position....like mileage, cell phone, tools for job, uniforms, shoes, etc.

ok, so I am clear, I am an employee, I have out of pocket expenses that are not reimbursed by my employer, those are no longer deductible in 2018?

Some states may not conform and still allow those deductions, like California, so you should still keep track of them!

That is correct.  Job-related expenses for W-2 employees are eliminated as a deduction on your federal return.  You might want to discuss this with the employer.

If you are a self-employed independent contractor/sole proprietor, Yes.
If you are an employee, No.
