George4Tacks and Marc.TaxMan are correct. All Misc deductions are suspended for Federal but may be allowed for the client's respective State return. Complete the Federal first. Then select Schedule A, Misc deductions worksheet. It's labeled at the top for "State only". Input the union dues, uniforms, small tools etc. Save the return. Open the State return to see if these items flowed individually or on one line in total. Some editing may be necessary if your state does not allow some of the deductions. Form 2106 can just be deleted if you wish. Meals will have to be adjusted to 50% or 80% for DOT Employees. Good luck.
