Overview of Travel Expenses

"Travel expenses" are expenses that you paid in relation to transportation or travel for business. For a travel expense to qualify for a deduction, the travel must have been primarily in relation to your job.


"Travel expenses" get reported on a separate form (Form 2106) that will be attached to your return.


Qualifying "travel expenses" include: parking fees, tolls, transportation (such as taxis and shuttles), lodging, airplane travel, car rental for business purposes, and expenses for the business use of your personal vehicle (such as mileage). Also, any meals and entertainment expenses related to business purposes would be considered a "travel expense".
