Solution for Isaac :

1. You can deduct certain exepenses as miscellaneous itemized deductions on Schedule A (Form:1040 or Form:1040NR) , You can deduct the expenses limitation up to 2% of AGI .
2. Here We can calculate the expenses frist so 800 + 1200 + 80 + 2400 = 4480 (Line 24 of schedule A) .
3. Figure 2 % of isaac AGI . 0.02 * 93,800 = 1876 . now as per 2% of his AGI rule . Subtract 2% of his AGI from his Deductions that are the subject to the rule . 4480 - 1876 = 2604.
4. Even though he had expenses of \$4480 because these particular exepenses is subject to the 2% rule , Isaac net deduction that he will receive on his return for these expenditures is only \$2604 .
5. Issac's deductible miscellaneous itemized deductions (after any limitation) on Schedule A is \$2604
