Hello and thank you for using Just Answer,
That certainly is a long commute.
The expenses for the interviewing are a tax expense that can be used on the Schedule A. As long as the position was still in the filed she normally works in.
Unfortunately, the costs for staying there while she works will not be deductible.
Generally, your tax home is the entire city or general area where your main place of business or work is located, regardless of where you maintain your family home. For example, you live with your family in Chicago but work in Milwaukee where you stay in a hotel and eat in restaurants. You return to Chicago every weekend. You may not deduct any of your travel, meals, or lodging in Milwaukee because that is your tax home. Your travel on weekends to your family home in Chicago is not for your work, so these expenses are also not deductible. If you regularly work in more than one place, your tax home is the general area where your main place of business or work is located.
Well, that is not good news. Thank you
