For 2018 tax year can an employee who receives W2 ( for parts delivery for a company) claim mileage on 1040 form?

This client is not self-employed but did claim mileage in 2017 as employer does not reimburse the auto expense. I tried to fill Form 2106 but mileage expenses do not transfer to Schedule A.

Is there any place either on Form 1040 or on Schedule A we can deduct the mileage expense?

Your input will be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

For the federal ———- but it might still be ok for the state.

Ohio doesn't have itemized deductions.

This sounds like a time for the employee to talk with the employer about a mileage reimbursement policy that at least covers part of the now nondeductible expense. It is deductible to the employer, but seldom of any tax benefit to the employee.
