I am a Nurse. Can I claim tax relief for washing my uniform?

Nurses and many other health professionals can generally claim tax relief for laundering a uniform with company logo, unless they are provided laundering facilities by their employer.

Tax relief can currently be claimed for the last five tax years. Following your tax rebate claim your tax code will change, an allowance for laundering your uniform will be put into your code so you will pay less tax and you won’t have to claim each year in the future.

In addition to making a tax rebate claim for washing your uniform you may also be able to make a claim for tax relief on professional fees. If you use your car to travel to clients in the community you may also be able to make a business mileage tax rebate claim.
