You can deduct the mortgage interest and property taxes that were paid on your UT home on your tax return.

That did not answer my question, What expences that I incur while working in California are deductible
Expert:  RD replied 8 years ago.

Unfortunately, you cannot deduct the rental or other expenses in CA as this is your tax home if you are going to be employed here and this is not your temporary assignment.
