H&rblock Some employees may be able to deduct certain work-related expenses. The following facts from the IRS can help you determine which expenses are deductible as an employee business expense. You must be itemizing deductions on IRS Schedule A to qualify. H&rblock Expenses that qualify for an itemized deduction generally include: H&rblock Business travel away from home H&rblock Business use of your car H&rblock Business meals and entertainment H&rblock Travel H&rblock Use of your home H&rblock Education H&rblock Supplies H&rblock Tools H&rblock Miscellaneous expenses H&rblock You must keep records to prove the business expenses you deduct. For general information on recordkeeping, see IRS Publication 552, Recordkeeping for Individuals available on this website, or by calling 1-800-TAX-FORM (800-829-3676). H&rblock If your employer reimburses you under an accountable plan, you should not include the payments in your gross income, and you may not deduct any of the reimbursed amounts. H&rblock An accountable plan must meet three requirements: H&rblock You must have paid or incurred expenses that are deductible while performing services as an employee. H&rblock H&rblock You must adequately account to your employer for these expenses within a reasonable time period. H&rblock H&rblock You must return any excess reimbursement or allowance within a reasonable time period. H&rblock If the plan under which you are reimbursed by your employer is non-accountable, the payments you receive should be included in the wages shown on your Form W-2.
