Job Search Expenses – Did You Know?

If you’re currently looking for a new job in your current occupation, you may be able to deduct some related expenses even if you don’t get a new job.

The below expenses may be tax-deductible:

– Costs of preparing and mailing your Resume
– Travel expenses including transportation, meals, and lodging
– Placement or employment agency fees

However, you would not be able to claim these expenses if you are looking for a job outside your current occupation, looking for a job for the first time, or had substantial time pass between your last job and the new one.

These must be itemized deductions and conditions such as a minimum threshold may apply.
