Not to beat this to death, but there is one more question I have regarding this travel expense deduction. I understand about the travel time. However, he was gone during the week, Sunday through Friday. During that time our phone bill was very high. Is there any way to deduct those phone calls since we would not have had those charges had he been home?Sorry about the late reply -- work's been keeping me busy this week.The phone bills might be an employee business expense. You would usually report these on form 2106. Unfortunately, this is an itemized deduction subject to the 2% of AGI floor. So you need to itemize, AND all of your miscellaneous deductions need to be more than 2% of your AGI. If this is your only misc deduction, it probably won't help (unless it's really big phone bills) ;-) Sorry for the continued bad news.--Peter
