Did you know that you can potentially lower your tax liability if you know what deductions you can claim on your tax return? As a careerist in the fields of certified nursing assistant or medical office assistant, there are a number of things you can write off if you’re filing an itemized tax return. Knowing what is an acceptable deduction (and what is not) is important though, so you don’t run afoul of IRS guidelines. At the www.nursinglink.com website, they’ve published an article entitled, “Financial Tips for Nurses – Income Tax Deductions” which includes some interesting information about what may be acceptable tax deductions for folks working in the medical/healthcare field. Things like uniforms and equipment, licenses and training fees, travel expenses and other things typically experienced by CNAs and medical assistants are all examined and explained. Definitely worth a quick read as tax season is now upon us.
