Where do you put in expenses for uniforms?

Confusing.. Under expenses there is no place for uniforms.  Everything is either office equipment, vehicles or trailers.  I have uniforms that can be taken off.  i am a chef and had to purchase chef jackets, chef caps and chef pants.

Where do you put in expenses for uniforms?

Are you a W-2 employee?

JOB RELATED EXPENSES

Only the amount of job-related expenses that are OVER 2% of your adjusted gross income get added to your list of itemized deductions, which still must exceed your standard deduction in order to make a difference on your return.  This is kind of a hard deduction to get.  If you need to enter these, go to Federal>Deductions and Credits>Employment Expenses>Job-Related Expenses.

Note:  Your 2017 tax return is the last time you will be able to use the job-related expenses.  Tax law changes go into effect for 2018 and beyond that eliminate this deductions.
