If you wish to deduct expenses you have from work, you must file a Schedule A to itemize instead of using the standard deduction and your expenses need to be more than 2% of your adjusted gross income.
For example: You have work expenses of $2000. Your Adjusted Gross Income is $35000. 2% of your Adjusted Gross Income is $700. So the amount of your expenses over $700 will be a deduction on the Schedule A.
You look at your income then multiply that by 2% to see how much of your expenses are deductible.
