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?
Prior to 2018, an employee could deduct unreimbursed job expenses to the extent these expenses, along with certain other miscellaneous expenses, were more than 2% of their adjusted gross income. Even then, the employee would need to be able to itemize to deduct these expenses.
However, with tax reform, all miscellaneous “2%” expenses, including unreimbursed employee expenses are not allowed between 2018 and 2025. Expenses such as union dues, work-related business travel, or professional organization dues are no longer deductible, even if the employee can itemize deductions.
Self-employed taxpayers may continue to deduct ordinary and necessary business expenses on Schedule C.
