I have unreimbursed expenses from work that I would like to claim on my tax return. Is there an unreimbursed employee expenses form that I need to use?
You can include unreimbursed expenses on your tax return. For unreimbursed employee expenses, Form 2106: Employee Business Expenses will need to be completed.
Popular fees include:
- Vehicle mileage under the standard rate for 2017
- Business related (meetings, training, multi-site facility visits)
- Transportation Fees
- Parking passes
- Bus or train fare (non-overnight transportation)
- Meals and entertainment (subject to Department of Transportation (DOT) hours of service limits)
- Overnight travel spending (with the exclusion of meals and entertainment)
- Hotel rooms / Air BnB’s
- Flights and airfare
- Car rentals
You must have enough unreimbursed expenses ($75 or more) to be able to itemize this form. To find other qualifying business-related expenses to include on your own income tax filing, see Form 2106 at www.irs.gov.
