No More Employee Deductions
by: Vickey

No. The employee deductions on Schedule A went away with the passing of the TCJA (Tax Cuts and Jobs Act).

You cannot deduct employee expenses on a SCH SE.

You also cannot deduct employee expenses on a SHC C. If you have additional income NOT reported on your W-2 such as guest speaker offerings at other churches...you could file that income on a SCH C and deduct expenses related to earning that income.
