According to the IRS, to be deductible, an expenditure must be both “ordinary” and “necessary” in connection with your profession.  The IRS defines “ordinary” as common and accepted in a particular profession and “necessary” as helpful and appropriate for a particular profession.

Employees may not deduct professional expenses that are eligible for reimbursement from their employer.
