What can I deduct as an expense?

You can deduct anything that you have to necessarily buy for work. By that I mean sun protection for outdoor workers, steel-cap boots for construction workers, travel required by your employer, donations and accountants fees to name a few.  Uniforms have special rules - they must be either protective clothing, or a specific uniform required to be worn by your employer.
