Up until the year of 2017 we had a big change in all taxes and people basically lost what was called the 2106 come 2018. And that was where employees, if you receive a W-2 and I can’t tell you how many tax returns I’ve seen where employees have created their own schedule C’s to deduct what they thought was a legitimate expense. But you’re not self-employed people so if you’re an employee and you have deductions they are not a tax deduction on your tax return. Only if you receive a 1099 and only the expenses tied to that 1099. You need help call me 615-367-0819.
