Clothes, eyewear, and shoes are typically not tax-deductible expenses under current IRS guidance. For clothing, work clothes that can double as street clothes or "special occasional" clothes (such as a suit to a wedding) cannot be claimed as a tax deduction. The same goes for eyewear and shoes.
The one exception is if you are an independent contractor for a company that requires you to purchase and wear a uniform. Uniform expenses would be tax deductible! We do not have a specific expense category for clothing in the Stride app, but you can use "Other," in the meantime if you have any uniform expenses to add. Don't forget to upload a picture of your receipt!
