Nurses are there for more than just dressing a wound or giving someone their needles. They are the backbone of the medical industry, they are the decision-makers, most of the time they’re at the forefront and need to determine quickly the best course of action, provide full care, and be the communicators for their patients.
When it comes to requiring work-related items, they usually need to pay for it themselves. Luckily for them, they can claim these expenses back as a deduction on their tax returns.
Popular deductions Nurses can claim:
Uniforms – The purchase, hire, mending, and cleaning costs of their uniforms that are unique to their job, and their boss requires them to wear it.
Protective Clothing – Non-slip nurse shoes, Anti-static Theatre Shoes, or Support Stockings.
