Nowhere. Employee business expenses are no longer deductible.

Susan (as usual) is correct...... unless maybe your State still allows the deduction of employee business expenses.  You should discuss a reimbursable plan with your employer.

i wouldn't assume there is just one employer.  My friend, a physical therapist who did home health care, before he retired would have a dozen W-2's from various agencies with a few 1099's thrown in.  He wouldn't claim all the miles because at a certain point, AMT would kick in.

That's a good possibility.... so the OP should talk to all employers

The employers mostly rely on Medicare for payment, and there are rules on what can and cannot be charged.  Socialized medicine and all that.  And in the long run, the answer will be that life returns to normal after 2025, if not sooner.

Are you using TurboTax? Because they provide some great help articles and resources. Even if you are not using that program to do your taxes, that is a great place to Learn about what matters to you.

I assume you are not preparing your Clients' tax returns, which is this ProConnect Software community you are asking. We can't help really, unless you are using ProConnect.

"Your answer did not focus on my question."

Well, that's not true. The very first Answer is your answer. And even if you are not using TurboTax, their Help articles are great. Otherwise, why not go directly to the IRS to ask about this issue? Because your question is not for how to use that Software; it's for What is the Tax Regulation for this?

And you are supposed to know what is required of the professional tax preparation program.

You were answered: "Nowhere. Employee business expenses are no longer deductible."

And the TurboTax article tells you: "After 2017, these and other unreimbursed employee expenses are no longer deductible."

You got Two Answers. Both agree.
