NEW JOB

      

      As an employee, you may be able to deduct certain unreimbursed expenses that the IRS considers "ordinary and necessary" to do your job. That would include things like union dues, job-related magazines and books, and other related business expenses.

       You must depreciate the cost of tools used in your work.

      If your job requires you to wear work clothes or uniforms that are not suitable for everyday wear, you may be able to deduct the cost and upkeep. If you purchased an electronic device (e.g., computer, cellular phone, etc)  and use it for business, you may claim a depreciation deduction. In other words, the phone or computer must be a condition of employment, and you have to use them for the convenience of your employer.

Do not forget to keep the records of the business and personal of the those devices to determine the percentage of business use.


      If you moved at least 50 miles in the last year and your move was job-related, you may be able to deduct the cost of moving your household goods and your traveling expenses. Allowable moving expenses are deductible whether or not you use Schedule A and itemize your deductions.
