    I'm assuming none of you are accountants but does anyone know if scrubs and shoes can be written off on your taxes?

    The box states you cannot write off clothing.

    Do you have an accountant do your taxes Lori? I've been able to write off my license fees and that's it pretty specific about how parking expenses can be written off. I wish I pay nearly a grand/year to park at work.

    Are you writing them off on the federal or provincial return?

    Yep an accountant does them. Hmmm very strange.

    This one, Employment Expenses 2013, is pretty specific. It states we can deduct the license fees but goes on to say things like briefcases and calculators, etc. cannot be written off.

    Most nurses aren't salaried, so that rules out a load of other deductions.

    That's very interesting. I have a few people tell me parking, shoes, scrubs could be. There will be a lot of upset people if they get audited and reassessed!
