Tax Deductions for Job-Related Expenses

Tax reform greatly affected your ability to claim business expense deductions. How do these new rules affect you?

Under tax reform, we can no longer claim unreimbursed expenses as an employee.  These expenses, ranging from out-of-pocket offices expenses to miles driven on  your own vehicle for your job, have all been suspended through 2025.  However, the increase in the standard deduction amount, $24,400 if married filing jointly or a qualified widow, $18,350 if head of household, and $12,200 if single or married filing separately, can help offset the loss of these deductions.
