Yes! Business related expenses offer locum tenens great tax breaks. This means you will get full reimbursement for health insurance premiums (as long as you don't have employee-sponsored plans or a spouse with an offered coverage plan through their workplace), travel expenses including lodging (assuming you work far enough from your permanent address of residency), driving between job sites, and 50% of meal cost. You should always consult with a trusted tax professional to ensure you are eligible for all these tax deductions, however.
