Beginning in tax year 2018, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act eliminated the deduction for unreimbursed employee expenses which includes travel expenses incurred for your job, as an itemized deduction.
For tax years prior to 2018, you are able to deduct qualifying travel expenses related to your job. Qualifying travel expenses include:
- parking fees
