Tax Tips for Jobseekers

Track Your Expenses


If you are searching for a job in your current (or recently current) field, your expenses are tax deductible. Even if you don't get the job you seek, you can still deduct the expenses related to your search.

Internet service, newspaper subscriptions, trade journals, self-help books, professional resume writing services, career counseling, schooling, memberships, and anything else that you use to search for a job or assist you in getting a job is tax deductible. This also applies to the clothes you need for interviews. Once you get the job, uniform or wardrobe expenses can be deducted as well.
