I am currently employed as a surgical resident. My responsibilities include 36 hour shifts, during which time I am not allowed to leave the hospital. My meals are not subsidized by the hospital, so I usually pay for lunches, dinners, breakfasts, etc. out of pocket. Several other hospital employees have told me about deducting meal expenses if I'm not allowed to leave my job for more than 12 hours.Is my meal money a possible tax deduction? If so, do I need to save receipts or is there an allowable deduction based on the number of 36 hour shifts I've worked the last twelve months?
