Where do I enter my job search expenses?

First, add up all your job-search expenses to come up with an amount. Then, follow these instructions:

  1. Open (continue) your return if you don't already have it open.
  2. Inside your program, search for job search expenses and then click the "Jump to" link in the search results.
  3. Enter your occupation, click Continue, and keep going until you get to the Job-Related Expenses screen, pictured below. (It's right after the Any Other Expenses? screen.)
    • If you land on the Job-Related Expenses Summary screen instead, click Add Another Occupation or edit the entry already there.
    • Important: Answer No to both the home office question and the vehicle question.
  4. Type Job-seeking costs (or similar) in the Description field and enter the amount. Click Continue and proceed.
