You can deduct certain employment expenses if you are not deducting them elsewhere in your return, they were not reimbursed and they do not entitle you to a reimbursement.
Most employees cannot deduct employment expenses. For example, you cannot deduct expenses for travel between your home and your employer's place of business, expenses for parking at your employer's place of business, or other expenses such as clothing.
For more information about the expenses that can be deducted and the requirements that must be met in order to deduct them, consult the guide Employment Expenses (IN-118-V).
