Tax deductions for nurses
For those of you who work on the wards, we’ve got you in mind. While you’re paying close attention to your patients, we’ve got our eye on all the occupation-specific expenses that we can help you claim.
In between charts and checks, we get that there’s not much time or energy left for pushing paper. So while you’ve been hard at work, we’ve been using our expertise to discover all the deductions you can claim this tax-time.
Nurse specific deductions
Our tax consultants turn your occupation inside out to make sure we include all the offsets and deductions you deserve.
As specialists in discovering nurse specific deductions, our expertise guarantees you a maximum refund. Here are some of the savvy deductions we love to factor in:
- Registration fees and memberships
- Uniforms, laundry and non-slip shoes
- Conferences and self-education
- Tools of your trade, including stethoscopes and other medical equipment, reference books, and nursing fobs
- Mobiles or pagers if you're on call
The good news is you can claim the costs of renewing your annual practising certificate as well as attending seminars, conferences and training courses that are work-related. Add to this list the costs of journals, periodicals and magazines that have a content considered to be aligned with nursing.
If your uniform is compulsory, you may be able to claim for non-slip shoes, socks, stockings or a single item like a tie if they’re an essential part of your work gear. Then there’s occupation-specific clothing; garments that aren’t every day in nature but would allow the public to easily recognise you as a nurse. Claim for the cost of laundering and dry-cleaning your eligible work clothes such as your required uniform.
The right records
We understand that it’s difficult to keep on top of your financial records while you’re focusing on patient records – so while you focus on wellness, we'll stay focused on getting your taxes in order.
All we need from you is a travel diary that details work-related travel and any records you have. Just keep your receipts, invoices, bank and credit card statements and when it comes to tax time, our accountants will diligently work through your deductions.
After all is said and deducted, we specialise in making tax simple. With over 40 years as Australia’s leading taxation experts, we’re fascinated by numbers – and great results.
