A Flight Attendant is allowed to deduct travel and training related expenses incurred in the course of their work. Due to the constant travel, often to different locations, record keeping is absolutely essential in order to maximize the possible deductions. Most tax preparers suggest that the Flight Attendant keep a receipt for any expense over $75, but they absolutely insist that extremely accurate and detailed records are kept in a log or diary.
