FBO status and the 2106

I would appreciate some real-world examples of fee-based
officials, entitled to an above-the-line adjustment to
income.

I have heard of using it in connection with law enforcement,
but I suspect that some practitioners have assumed too broad
of a definition, i.e., that as long as the officer is
required to respond to emergency calls, his/her moonlighting
falls under this category.

As I interpret (what little I can find in IRS pubs) it, the
fees must be paid by the government employer, not by a
private entity. But that brings me back to: what situations
have you run across that create this type of deduction?

Any information that would make a dent in my ignorance on
this subject would be appreciated.
