There's lots of info on how this works and what you need to do here: 

The following instructions apply to expenses related to permanent employment:

Note: To claim this deduction, you must have a signed T2200 from your employer showing the conditions of your employment. Don’t file the T2200 with your return but do keep a copy for your records.

1. Select Find in the upper-right area.

Note: If you don’t see the Find button, continue through the Intro/Profile section until the Find button appears.

2. In the Find window, type “employment.”

3. Select Employment Expenses from the list of results, then select Go.

4. On the Employment Expenses step, select Yes.

5. On the Employment Expense Profile step, select all the checkboxes that apply to your situation, then select Continue.

6. Follow the instructions that appear onscreen to enter your expenses.

4. The instructions for this step depend on how much of your return you completed so far, so follow the instructions below that match what you see onscreen:

  • If you see the Your Self-Employment or Business Summary step and want to enter business expenses for a business not listed onscreen, select Enter New Business for <Name>, then follow the instructions onscreen to reach the expenses section.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
