Why didn't I get equal amounts to the days for the flat rate working from home expenses?

You should get $2.00 per day for each day entered. Depending on which version of TurboTax you are using, you may have to make certain entries to actually post the flat-rate amount to your tax return.

 

Using the FIND button from the top toolbar in TurboTax Online, or the EasyStep view of TurboTax CD/Download, type in Employment as your keyword, highlight Employment Expenses and click Go

Thank you so much for your reply. I followed all the steps correctly and I could see deduction in my payable tax, however, the deductions didn't reflect exact amount of money. For example I worked for a 167 days which is worth $334. My deduction was only about $100. Am I missing something?
