My main source of income is tips at my job. What deductions can I take?

Employees cannot deduct any unreimbursed employee business expenses in 2018 through 2025. However, you may be eligible for certain “above-the-line” deductions that can be taken without itemizing, such as contributions to a traditional IRA and to a health savings account. Check the IRS instructions for eligibility to make these contributions.
