Unhappy Expenses

Can I claim expenses for supplies I brought for my job under the Schedule C form even if I didn't have a business? I'm a LPN and I had to purchase certain supplies, uniforms and other things for my job and I would like claim those on my tax return. Is this at all possible?

• unless you are a independent contractor, no youy can’tfile sch C of 1040. Your uniforms are deductible as long as they are required for the job by your employer or client, and the clothing is not suitable for personal wear. You must keep records to prove the business expenses you deduct
If you work as an independent contractor in nursing positions, you deduct the cost of nursing uniforms, supplies, other your biz related things on Sch C, along with your other self-employment expenses. Sch C does not provide a specific line item for uniform expenses, so list the expense in the Other Expenses section on the second page of Sch C of 1040.
If you are employed by a medical facility as an EE, you can deduct expenses required by your employer on Sch A, along with your other itemized deductions. If your employer reimburses you for any part of your uniform or other costs, you must deduct the reimbursed amounts received from the total uniform cost to determine the amount of your deduction. You record uniform expenses in the Job Expense and Certain Miscellaneous Deductions section of Sch A on the Unreimbursed Employee Expenses line.to deduct it, you need to itemize deductions on return.unless your total itemized deductions claimed on Sch A are greater than the standard deduction for that tax filing year, you need to take the standard deduction to provide the most tax benefit. In that case, you won't get to deduct your uniform / other costs on your federal tax filing. Expenses that qualify for an itemized deduction generally includeSupplies ;Tools ;Miscellaneous expenses

Thank you for that info. I know I don't have enough deductions to itemize so I guess I'll have to take a loss
