What if I am searching for a job?

You may be able to deduct certain expenses you incur while looking for a new job, even if you do not get a new job. Expenses may include travel, resume and outplacement agency fees. For more information, see Publication 529, Miscellaneous Deductions . Moving costs for a new job at least 50 miles away from your home may also be deductible.
