Tax Credits And Deductions

Job Expenses

Liberty Tax Service reminds you that generally, you can depreciate the amount you spend for tools used in your work. Some of the other expenses you may deduct include union dues, job-related magazines and books, and other related business expenses. If your employer requires you to wear work clothes or uniforms that are not suitable for everyday wear, you may deduct the cost and upkeep. These expenses are deducted on Schedule A subject to 2% of your adjusted gross income.
