Please be aware that there are rules regarding taking certain deduction.
For Example: You must be eligible to itemize if you want to deduct expenses on a schedule A. When itemizing Healthcare and job/ employee business expenses must exceed a percentage of your Adjusted Gross Income (AGI). Charitable expenses cannot exceed 50% of your gross income. Please note: The IRS allows filers a standard deduction. In most cases, when not required to itemize, the itemized deductions
For Schedule C filers: Expenses must be strictly business related.
