Sample Work Deductions

Taxpayers are eligible to take many different work deductions based on their occupation. In order to take work deductions you must itemize and prepare schedule A.
Deductible work expenses are limited to the amount that exceeds 2% of your gross salary:
Example: Your income is $50,000. 2% of that amount is $1,000. The amount of your work deductions that exceed $1,000 are deductible.
These are some sample deductions to the listed occupations. Rasta returns will never rush you and will get to know you so we can work together to maximize these deductions.
