Income Tax Tips/Hints

  1. 0 Hello everyone-

    Wishing everyone a fruitful new year!

    This will be the first time I file taxes as an RN, I am a single dude, no kids and no house yet. I am not sure what I can write off in my taxes to help me ease any painful payback!

    Any tips/hints from past experiences?

    Sounds like something you should be asking an accountant. I know you can deduct student loan interest and work-related expenses. For me, as a home health nurse, I deduct the difference between my mileage reimbursement rate ($0.40) and the federal reimbursement rate ($0.56).

    I agree, you probably need to chat with a tax prep person, but I do know you can deduct the cost of professional licensure. So for a new nurse, BON license fees and what you paid Pearson for the NCLEX

    Oh, the terrible burden of making more money....

    Unless you did something idiotic like claiming 10 exemptions on your W-4, you should be fine and an accountant will be happy to take more of your hard earned money to do your ridiculously easy taxes.

    While I am not endorsing any product or giving you any advice, I have been using Turbotax since 1999 and have not yet been bankrupted by taxes or gone to jail.

    Good luck!
