What Is The Difference Between Travel And Commuting Expenses?

Generally, commuting from your home to your place of business when you are not away from home are not deductible. Unreimbursed employee travel are deductible but subject to the 2% of AGI floor on Schedule A. Self-employed individuals claim 100% of the travel expenses on Schedule C.
