In Kyne v. Commissioner, T.C. Summ. Op. 2009-98 (June 25, 2009), the Tax Court upheld the IRS's disallowance of a Thomson-West sales rep's deductions for medical expenses, charitable contributions, and miscellaneous itemized deductions (including car expenses, parking fees and tolls, home office expenses, meals and entertainment expenses, and cell phone expenses) because he failed to provide substantiation for the expenses beyond those allowed by the IRS.
