Job Hunting Expenses

Job-hunting expenses are expenses incurred while seeking employment. The IRS no longer allows people looking for work in their same line of business to deduct portions of their job hunt on taxes. This is currently in effect for tax periods 2018–2025 as part of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which Congress signed on Dec. 22, 2017. The deduction is likely to return in 2026. Additionally, no tax breaks exist if it’s your first time looking for a job.
