Jury fees

A lot of trials were postponed in 2020 due to the pandemic, so perhaps you didn’t get called to jury duty, even though you were expecting to. If you were part of the rare few who did go, you can write off what you made as a juror. Most employers ask that you hand over your juror’s fees to them, and yet, you report those as income. If you gave your juror’s fees to your employer because they continued to pay your salary while you attended trial, you can write off those fees. And don’t forget to write off expenses incurred while on jury duty like parking, meals, or transportation.
