OTR Truck Driver

Hello, 

I have a client who is an OTR driver. He is leasing the truck and only pays for his lease and Gas.
How and where to enter these expenses in his return?
can we deduct the per diem amount on top of the gas lease payments ?

Thanks

This sounds like Schedule C. Expense the lease as Rent, vehicles. Fuel as Other: Fuel,

If your client is an employee with W-2, then all expenses would go on 2106, if appropriate for the year in question.

Thank you @George4Tacks
He gets 1099-Misc, so Sch C is where the expenses go.
and we have the option to go with either Standard deduction or actual expense ?
