As JABoa points out, you cannot deduct reimbursed expenses. However, you need to check your W-2 to see whether your employer reported the reimbursement as wages. (There are various ways of handling the reimbursement.) If the reimbursement is included in your income, you'll need to do the 3903 for the expenses.

You'll find details about all this in IRS Publication 521.
