Tax Deductions for Temporary Workers

Thousands of individuals have accepted temporary work assignments, after being laid off and unable to find full-time “permanent” employment.  Most of these people are eligible for significant tax deductions previously unavailable to them as regular employees:

  1. Car and plane flights between one’s home and business destination
  2. Taxis or limosines from the airport or business lodging to one’s temporary work location
  3. Shipping and bagging costs
  4. Car expenses while away
  5. Lodging and meals
  6. Tips for any of the above services
  7. Business calls, faxes, computer rental fees
  8. Dry cleaning and laundry

Details on taking these material tax deductions on one’s tax return can be found in the article, “Tax Deductions for Temporary Workers“.
