A taxpayer who teaches at ABC school from September to June and then teaches summer school at DEF school in July and August would qualify as a temporary employee for the summer school work. The taxpayer would then be able to deduct the transportation expenses for the summer school teaching.

My notes also indicate that "If a taxpayer travels back and forth each day to a temporary assignment location, whether in the taxpeyer's metropolitan area or away from the general area of his or her tax home, the cost of daily round trip transportation is deductible".
