under the current tax law for W-2 (employees) job expenses are no longer deductible.
this rule does not apply to self-employed. if you receive 1099-misc for self-employed income (usually box 7 but some put it in box 3) then that income and related expenses go on Schedule C.
You probably entered your 1099-Misc at the 1099-Misc screen.
