I was a travel nurse in 2016 what can i claim?

Here are the most common deductions for a travel nurse:

  • Transportation Costs—plane, train, boat and bus fare as well as driving expenses to your assignment, including car maintenance.  Tolls and parking count, too.  Travel by taxi from airport or station to your temporary housing is also deductible.  If you rent a car, your work-related travel in that car is deductible;
  • Housing and Meals—all meals, beverages, and associated taxes are fair game;
  • Cleaning—dry cleaning and laundry costs related to your assignment;
  • Telephone Expenses—related to your assignment, including mobile phone expenses;
  • Internet and Computer Expenses—Internet access and computer maintenance;
  • License Fees and Continuing Education Costs;
  • Malpractice Insurance;
  • Uniform Costs;
  • Job Search Costs;
  • Tips—any tips paid in connection with any of these costs are deductible.

Indeed, travel nursing brings tremendous tax benefits that can make a huge difference on your tax return.  Don’t get too excited yet, though. Keep in mind that there are some key responsibilities and duties that come with all of these deductions. See
