Red face A little help from any Canadian nurses

I am curious to see if anyone out there might be able to give me a hand with some questions I have about income tax stuff. I just graduated last spring, and am now a fully employed grownup.

Anyways, I have been puttering through my income tax stuff and have a couple of questions. Does anyone know if I can claim what I have spent on uniforms? If so, how much and where? Also, can I claim what I paid to write the registration exam and get fully registered?

I am going to give Revenue Canada a call this week, but thought that I would put the question out to you folks.

Thanks in advance!

Cool From one candian nurse to another

Hey there
The tax man up here has a little spot called professional fees/dues etc (line 212 on the form)- I always put in my licensing fee, any courses I took,my union dues, and any other small things(ie uniforms) that are involved with nursing. I don't think that there is a limit of how much you can put in there for uniforms etc because its all a part of your job, as long as your shelling your hard earned money for that you should be able to count it towards your taxes.
Hope this helps!

Default South of the border?

Does anyone know if we can do something like that here in the US?

I wouldn't mind writing off my NCLEX and state board registration fees...or my scrubs, for that matter.
