Question by Chris S: Can I deduct travel expenses to get to work?
I fly weekly and stay in a hotel for 4 nights with rental car for work. I live in Minneapolis with my family where my wife works and now I work in Milwaukee and have to be there each week. I spend about $ 600 a week commuting to work. I am wondering if I can expense that from my taxes.
Answer by the tax lady
When you accepted a permanent job, you tax home moved. This is called commuting and not deductible.
The exception is if the job was temporary, expected to last less than a year and actually does last less than a year. (And even then, you are easily audited and subject to AMT.)
