Can you deduct your work bonus?

A work bonus is not a deduction. It is taxable income.  If it was on your W-2 then it is already entered when you put in your information from your W-2.  If you received a separate document for the bonus then you need to enter it under Wages and Income.  How did your employer report the bonus?
