GONE: Unreimbursed expenses deduction for employees:
If you're an employee who has deducted unreimbursed job expenses in the past, know that this deduction is now no longer available under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. However, employers can consider reimbursing employees directly for the cost of expenses like tools, uniforms, travel or continuing education. Employers can still deduct those expenses on their business returns. Ask your employer about reimbursement.

A new twist on scams this tax season:
The IRS urges taxpayers to beware of fake calls to return money from tax return refund checks that have been deposited in error into bank accounts. Scammers either pretend to be collection agency employees or use a recorded message threatening people to return the refund. These scammers have already filed fraudulent tax returns and used the taxpayers' real bank accounts for the deposit.

If you get a call from someone claiming to be an IRS agent or collections agency employee asking for money, review the situation before you take action. Read the IRS's Taxpayer Guide to Identity Theft, and contact your tax preparer right away.
